Three men were charged with drugs and weapons related offences.

Additional investigations have resulted in a 51-year-old man being issued with a Notice to Appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on January 15 in relation to receiving or possessing property obtained from trafficking or supplying a dangerous drug.

The offence relates to the large sum of cash seized during the search.

Detective Inspector Brendan Smith of Taskforce Maxima said it was an important step in the crackbown on bikie gangs.

“It is important that as part of our enforcement action we do all we can to seize and confiscate the proceeds from criminal activities,” Detective Inspector Smith said.

“Offenders need to understand we will target their assets where we find evidence linking to proceeds of crime. Taskforce Maxima will continue to use a number of methods to disrupt criminal motorcycle gangs including targeting ill-gotten gains and unexplained wealth,” he added.
