The Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) says it has smashed a major cocaine and ice racket on the Gold Coast linked to Hells Angels.

It comes after a major covert investigation known as Operation Atlanta, which targeted organised crime in the area.

Four men, allegedly major players in a distribution network that had links to the Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, are facing over 650 separate criminal charges as a result of the investigation.

A 41-year-old has been charged with 244 offences, a 55 year-old property developer has been charged with 296 offences and a 46-year-old has been charged with 26 offences.

All three have been charged with trafficking and supplying ice and cocaine.

The 41-year-old man was also charged with producing ice.

A 55-year-old Gold Coast man was charged by the CCC last month as part of the operation, with 91 offences including trafficking ice and cocaine and 74 counts of supplying drugs.

It will be alleged the men were involved in an ice production and distribution site was running out of Tedder Avenue, Main Beach

The wholesale value of the ice is approximately $250,000 but would have a significantly larger street value after being cut, repackaged and sold.

A range of weapons were also seized during the operation including a pump action shotgun, rifle, butterfly knife and a taser.

The men were bailed and are expected to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 3 March 2017.

Officer ‘bashed by bikie’ before station rampage

what a loser..

Kyle Stephen Bedford pointed a gun at colleagues.

Kyle Stephen Bedford pointed a gun at colleagues.

A police officer who kicked down a door at the Port Hedland station and pointed a gun at his colleagues says he was assaulted by a bikie before the drunken rampage.

Const. Kyle Stephen Bedford was “highly intoxicated” when he went to the police station after leaving the Pier Hotel late on a Saturday night last year.

After setting off an alarm and kicking open a door, Bedford took an AR-15 assault rifle from the armoury and loaded his pistol. When South Hedland officers turned up, Bedford pointed his gun at them and said he would shoot if they were armed or were with other people.

There were questions in Perth Magistrate’s Court yesterday about what happened between Bedford leaving the pub and arriving at the police station. He told the author of a psychiatric report he had a disagreement with a bikie and was assaulted before he got to the station.

Chief Magistrate Steven Heath ordered a trial of the issues, saying the alleged assault was an important factor in sentencing.

Bedford pleaded guilty to damaging property, carrying a firearm while affected by alcohol and pointing a firearm at a person.
