WA Police Detective Senior Sergeant Jason Beesley, who’s the officer incharge of the Gang Crime Squad, saying seizures in this incident shows how outlaw motorcycle gangs conduct business.
“Gang Crime Squad detectives continue to target outlaw motorcycle gangs – their members and associates – who are heavily involved in the illicit drugs trade. The fact there is 3kg of Cocaine and 1kg of Meth involved suggests those arrested are not at the street level – they are much higher up the chain of command,” he said.
“Our investigation into the broader criminal networks involved is ongoing and we will relentlessly pursue all those people who attempt to fill our streets with harmful drugs.”
