Queensland and NSW police have raided several properties across the Gold Coast and Tweed, arresting four men as part of a major cross-border operation targeting Outlaw Motorcycle Gang members.
More than 50 officers were involved in the raids on Tuesday, with a home at Tugun and a workplace at Carrara among those searched.
At the Tugun property, officers seized steroids and prescription medication and issued notices to appear at court to a 32-year-old man and a 24-year old woman.

In Carrara, a 47-year-old member of the Lone Wolf OMCG Gold Coast chapter was arrested on a warrant. He was taken to Southport watch house where NSW Police applied for his extradition.
A home at Cudgen, south of Tweed Heads, was also targeted with officers seizing ammunition, illicit drugs, steroids, explosives and cash. A 25-year-old member of the Mongols OMCG Tweed Heads chapter was arrested before being released pending further inquiries.
Detective Chief Inspector Brendon Cullen said police and government agencies across the region are continuing to work closely to reduce the impact of OMCG activities.
“High-impact operations like this are conducted to target and disrupt the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs and their associates,” Det Ch Insp Cullen said.
“The safety of the community is our priority, and we will not tolerate activities that put the public at risk,” Det Ch Insp Cullen said.
