TEN members of the Black Uhlans Motorcycle gang
have been intercepted this morning at Gladstone.
Police from Gladstone and Rockhampton intercepted
the group, who were riding south in their club colours.
All 10 members were spoken to and were
Capricornia District Detective Inspector Shadlow
said no offences had been committed but police were able to gather
and collate intelligence.
He said it was a traffic-style interception and
motorcycle gangs riding en masse could expect to be intercepted in
this fashion as the state cracked down on outlaw motorcycle gangs.
The interception followed a similar crackdown in
Warwick on Tuesday, when dozens of police officers converged on the
Life and Death Motorcycle club.
Again, no offences were detected by police.
So just a discrimitory stop then??!!!
The Black Uhlans are one of four bikie gangs to
have set up shop in Gladstone, with a clubhouse at 85 Hanson Rd, in
the heart of Gladstone's industrial centre, housing about two dozen
members known to police.
Assistant Commissioner for Central region, Mike
Condon, last month said bikie gangs were targeting "high disposable
income and mining areas to peddle their drugs".
