A sawn-off shotgun, a handgun, knuckle dusters and ammunition were also found inside a car at the same property.

A 27-year-old member of the Mongols was charged with numerous offences including two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of explosives and possession of dangerous drugs.

He is due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on November 20.

The other raids netted a handgun, prohibited Mongols items, drug utensils, prescription drugs, cash and vehicles.

A number of mobile phones were also seized and will be examined by Police.

Police say the action aimed to dismantle and disrupt the operations of the group which they say poses a risk to the safety of the Queensland community.

These targeted operations which also include partnerships with interstate and international law enforcement agencies, will continue, ensuring a borderless and agile approach in targeting unlawful activities.”
