Northern Territory Police are attempting to track down three patched motorcycle vests belonging to a gang described as a criminal network.

Superintendent Clint Sims from the Drug and Organised Crime Squad said the Rebels bikie vests were stolen during a break-in at a private residence last Friday night.

"It's believed the vests have a value of up to $15,000 each" he said.

The vests were stolen from a house in the rural suburb of Virginia.

The Rebels are classified as an outlaw motorcycle gang in the Territory and have been told by Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw they are not welcome in the Top End.

In 2015 the club's president was assaulted in an attack that police believe was inflicted by members of a rival club, the Comancheros.

The attack prompted NT Police to warn of a feud between the two bikie gangs, saying they feared the public could be put at risk.
