POLICE fear a bikie turf war could break out in Darwin as the Rebels try to muscle in on Hells Angels territory.
The Rebels - Australia's largest outlaw motorcycle gang - are trying to establish a chapter in the Top End and have recruited locals.
Last month the bikies were seen riding on the Stuart Highway "in colours" displaying Rebels Darwin chapter patches on their jackets.
Police Commissioner John McRoberts told Mix 104.9's Pete Davies police would do everything within their legislative powers to disrupt their activities.
Mr McRoberts' message was clear: "Bikies, you are not welcome in the Northern Territory.
"Property owners, I urge you, don't lease premises to bikies. If it is a factory unit or a tin shed out in the back blocks don't lease it to them. They are not establishing legitimate businesses."
