The hunt for a wanted Finks member on an outstanding warrant has led police to charge him and another alleged member of the bikie gang when he arrived home in the middle of a raid.

Officers from Strike Force Raptor were looking for alleged Finks member Jesse Kennedy, 29, in Sutherland last week on charges relating to a second instance of driving while disqualified.( aah Raptor, all the heavy crimes, lol..)

While they were patrolling in Sylvania Waters, police say they saw Mr Kennedy standing on the street before fleeing into a nearby home when he spotted them,  and jumped the fence when officers gave chase.

An extensive search could not locate him; however, police located MDMA and ice, plus items in breach of a Firearms Prohibition Order inside the Belgrave Esplanade home, leading them to establish a crime scene.

Police seized 100 MDMA tablets, ice, human growth hormone, a stun gun, rounds for a 12-gauge shotgun and an extendable baton.

They also arrested a man who arrived home during the search, who they will allege is also a member of the bikie gang.

He was charged with two counts of possessing a prohibited drug, possessing prescribed restricted substance and having a firearm or similar at premises while subject to a prohibition order.

The man, 30, was granted police bail to appear at Sutherland Local Court on August 16.

On Monday, police arrested Mr Kennedy at Parramatta Police Station.

He was charged with the outstanding warrant, acquiring ammunition subject to FPO, possessing ammunition without permit, possessing prohibited weapon, two counts of possessing prohibited drug, and possessing prescribed restricted substance.

He appeared before Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday, where he entered a plea of guilty to the offences relating to the charges laid this week.

He did not enter a plea in relation to charges of driving or failing to appear in accordance with bail conditions.

He did not apply for bail, which was formally refused.

Mr Kennedy will next appear in the same court on July 24 via audio-visual link.
