THE national boss of the Comanchero bikie gang has beat police charges against him after a magistrate found he was unlawfully arrested.

Daux Hohepa Ngakuru was the passenger in a Silver Subaru traveling at over 200km per hour along Southern Cross Drive during the early hours of the morning on July 26 last year.

When the vehicle was pulled over by police he was hand cuffed, searched and locked up over night after police found two valium tablets on him.

However Magistrate Robert Williams dismissed a possession of prescription drugs charge against the 31-year-old today because the police officer breached law enforcement powers by failing to tell the bikie why he was being searched and arrested.

"It would appear from the evidence that has been given by the officer no information was provided by him to the defendant,'' Mr Williams told Waverley Local Court.

Police Prosecutor Mark Drury told the court the officer recognised Ngakuru from photos and knew he was "high up in a motorcycle gang."

He said the officer also "didn't know if there were firearms in the car."

Mr William dismissed the charges against Mr Ngakuru and ordered the prosecution pay his $3000 legal fees.
