A 31-year-old Mudgeeraba man, a member of the Lone Wolves OMCG, has been charged with two counts of possessing dangerous drugs and one count each of unlawful possession of weapons, disobedience of a lawful order, keeping a loaded firearm, possession of drug utensils, authority required to possess explosives (ammunition).
Detective Inspector Brendan Smith from Taskforce Maxima said police would continue to investigate the activities of Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.
“Once again, we are finding gang members involved in the manufacture and distribution of dangerous drugs,” Detective Inspector Smith said.
“Only yesterday members of the Finks OMCG were arrested for drug offences and now a member of the Lone Wolves has been.
“The combination of drugs, illegal weapons and OMCG related crime clearly puts the community at risk, and as seen by today and the preceding weeks, we will be unrelenting in our efforts in ensuring community safety.”

Investigations are continuing and further charges are expected to be laid.
