NSW Police have raided several properties allegedly connected to the Lone Wolf bikie gang, seizing a veritable armoury of insane weapons including bladed whips, stun guns, ninja stars and credit card knives.
A strike force of officers from the Richmond local area command, the State Crime Command's Gangs Squad and the Australian Federal Police National Anti-Gangs Squad have been investigating the importation of prohibited weapons for some months now.
The team charged nine people linked to the Lone Wolf outlaw motorcycle gang with drug offences in October, seizing $5 million of drugs including "over 2000 cannabis plants, commercial quantities of MDMA, and other drugs".
On Tuesday morning, further search warrants were carried out at two units in Lismore, and Firearms Prohibition Order searches were carried out at eight properties at South Lismore, Gundarimba, Caniaba, Alstonville, Rous Mill, Bungawalbin, Georgica, and Woodburn.
Check out some of the weapons they seized.
Police allege they seized 74 prohibited weapons during the raids, "including knuckle dusters, machetes, replica firearms, electronic stun guns, handcuffs, throwing stars, whips containing blades, and credit card knives", which were allegedly imported illegally after being purchased online.
Just look at these things.
Police arrested a 44-year-old man, who is said to be assisting officers with enquiries at Lismore Police Station.
"The investigation highlights how important it is for us to co-operate with other law enforcement agencies, such as the Australian Federal Police to ensure we can find those responsible and put them before the court," said Richmond Local Area Command Acting Inspector, Bernadette Ingram.
"It is a great result to see such a large number of illegal weapons removed from the community. We will be relentless in pursuing those people associated with OMCGs that think they are above the law," added AFP Detective Superintendent Anthony Hall.Suggest a correction
