Police intercept bikies on Cunningham Highway
BREAKING: A MASSIVE police presence on the Cunningham Highway north of Warwick today is understood to be targeting members of an outlaw motorcycle club.
As many as 70 police officers from Warwick, Toowoomba and Ipswich are on the scene at the Driver Reviver stop on the highway at Gladfield. It is understood they are intercepting members of the Black Uhlans club.
The action is part of the order given to Queensland Police to intercept every bikie they see, even if the rider is doing nothing wrong.
It is believed officers have been told to pull over every single bikie they can to help collate intelligence on criminal motorcycle gang activity.
A Black Uhlans club chapter ride at Gladstone yesterday delivered criminal motorcycle gangs a taste of what's to come in the State Government crackdown, after a 10-strong bikie contingent was intercepted by police at Iveragh, between Benaraby and Miriam Vale.
Riders were subjected to identification and outstanding warrant checks by officers from Gladstone, Rockhampton and regional centres, after public information about the Black Uhlans' national run tipped them off.
It is understood similar checks are being carried out at Gladfield today.
Today's interception follows a similar crackdown in Warwick on Tuesday, when dozens of police officers converged on the Life and Death Motorcycle club.
No offences were detected by police.
