Acting Detective Inspector Ian Galpin said the discovery was quite “concerning”.

“It is always concerning when members of an identified organisation such as the Rebels OMCG are found in possession of firearms, counterfeit currency, stolen property and drugs,” he saod.

“However we remain determined to investigate their involvement in serious and organised crime and this is yet another example of the hard work taking place by members of the Organised Crime Gangs Group on a daily basis,” Acting Detective Inspector Galpin said.

Investigations are ongoing and police say further charges are expected.
