Hells Angels arrested in Qld

THREE members of the Hells Angels criminal motorcycle gang, including the sergeant-at-arms and the treasurer, have been arrested in Brisbane.

Taskforce Maxima Commander Detective Superintendent Mick Niland says they were arrested along with four others in a major drug trafficking and supply operation in the southeast.

Operation Kilo Advantage started in June 2012 and targeted members of the Hells Angels allegedly involved in the supply, distribution and trafficking of drugs in the Brisbane area.

The operation closed on Wednesday after 22 search warrants across Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich and the Gold Coast.

Eight of the warrants were on premises that police will allege are rented by members of the Hells Angels.
