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.

Police monitored outlaw bikie gangs during a ride in the North-West last weekend

Bikie headquarters: The Outlaws Motorcycle Club at East Devonport.

Bikie headquarters: The Outlaws Motorcycle Club at East Devonport.

Tasmania Police undertook activities to monitor members of an outlaw motorcycle club from Melbourne who took part in a ride in the North-West at the weekend. 

Deputy Commissioner Scott Tilyard said about 20 “Foolish Few” members arrived in Devonport on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry.

Deputy Commissioner Tilyard said no arrests were made. 

A large contingent of Outlaws Motorcycle Club members and the Foolish Few members rode in a convoy on the Bass Highway between Burnie and Devonport. The mass of bikies was an intimidating sight and sound as the bikies rode several abreast at times.

“The community can be assured that police will not tolerate criminal or anti-social behaviour and the activities of the OMCG members while they are in our state will be monitored and police will respond to any issues that may arise,” Deputy Commissioner Tilyard said. He rejected speculation the Bandidos had established a clubhouse at Shearwater, or anywhere else in Tasmania.
