An alleged Finks bikie has had his prized motorbike seized by Taskforce Maxima detectives following an overnight raid on the Gold Coast.
According to police, officers located and seized a 2013 Harley Davidson ‘Night Rod’ motorcycle valued in excess of $20,000 from a home in Coomera.
A 27-year-old Coomera man, who is allegedly a patched member and Treasurer of the Finks Gold Coast chapter, was issued with a Notice to Appear for three counts of unlicensed driving.
Consequently, the motorbike was subject to impoundment pending permanent forfeiture.
Also, a 22-year-old Paradise Island man, a patched member of the Finks OMCG Gold Coast chapter, was issued with a Notice to Appear for one count of unlicensed driving.
Both men will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on November 18.
Detective Inspector Brendan Smith from Taskforce Maxima said it was a good result: “Taskforce Maxima’s Road Policing Unit delivers an additional capability to target the unlawful behaviour of crime gangs. These alleged breaches of road safety legislation provides further examples of how some gang members have no regard for community safety.”
He continued: “The riding of high powered motorcycles without an appropriate licence puts all road users at risk.”
