Bikie raid nets police $10,000 in stolen property

A POLICE raid on bikies has netted $10,000 in allegedly stolen property including a motorcycle, trailer and compressor.

Drug materials and ammunition was also allegedly found by police.

The raid was targeting the Black Uhlans Criminal Motorcycle gang.

A 26-year-old Southport man, who police believe is a patched member of the Black Uhlans criminal motorcycle gang, was arrested and charged stealing, receiving stolen property, wilful damage and possessing explosives and drug utensilves.

He was due to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Brendan Smith of Task Force Maxima said the raid showed how gang members could be involved with so many crimes.

"They are opportunistic, taking advantage of any situation to further their criminal activities, often at the expense of everyday Queenslanders," Det Insp Smith said.

"This is why we will continue to target criminal gangs.  It is important we do all we can to change their offending behaviour to protect Queenslanders."
