Bikie clubhouse raid: drugs, cash found
July 12, 2009 - 2:10PM
Ecstasy tablets, LSD, cocaine and thousands of dollars in cash have been found during a raid on an alleged Rebels bikie gang clubhouse in northern Sydney, police say.
The police search was part of follow-up inquiries after officers stopped a ute on Carlotta Street, Artarmon, about 8.20pm yesterday.
A search of the vehicle found a small quantity of drugs, an ice pipe and an axe beneath the driver's seat, police said.
The 33-year-old driver was charged with a number of drug offences and was due to appear in Parramatta Bail Court today.
Police said further investigations led them to search a property on the same street, allegedly used as the clubhouse for the North Sydney chapter of the Rebels bikie gang, about 2.40am this morning.
Officers allegedly seized drugs, including almost 200 ecstasy tablets, cocaine, marijuana, LSD and amphetamines and prescription drugs.
About $7800 in cash was also found and 78 people were searched, police say.
Four men were issued with court attendance notices for drug possession, while another man, aged 31, will appear in court on a date to be fixed charged with hindering a police officer in the execution of their duty.
Police say they aren't ruling out pressing more charges.
