Taree men arrested in raids on outlaw motorcycle gang
Three men alleged to be members of the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, have been arrested at Taree.
The arrests were made during a series of raids this week in the Manning Valley, the Hunter and in Sydney.
Operation Dambuster was set up last August to target drug and gun crime between Sydney and Taree.
The NSW Crime Command's Gang Squad and Manning-Great Lakes detectives have been working together to investigate the criminal activities of the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.
The key focus has been the commercial supply of drugs between Taree and Sydney.
On Wednesday police swooped on properties in Taree, Newcastle and Sydney and arrested ten people all alleged to be linked to the Bandidos.
They included senior Bandidos and three fully patched members of the gang's Manning Valley chapter.
Items seized ranged from a kilo of cocaine, and trafficable quantities of ice and steroids; to a military style gun and three pistols, one with a homemade silencer.
An undisclosed amount of cash was also seized.
