Consequently, a 37-year-old Worongary man, an associate of the Finks OMCG was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of dangerous drugs, one count of possession of property suspected of being used in a drug offence, one count of possession of a drug utensil, one count of possession of drug making instructions, two counts of unlawfully possessing weapons and two counts of possession of explosives (ammunition and fireworks).

A 26-year-old Worongary woman was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of dangerous drugs, one count of possession of property suspected of being used in a drug offence, one count of possession of a drug utensil, one count of possession of drug making instructions, two counts of unlawfully possessing weapons and two counts of possession of explosives (ammunition and fireworks).

A 69-year-old Worongary man was issued with a notice to appear for one count of possession of a dangerous drug.

“Today’s efforts have removed both dangerous drugs and weapons from the street, helping make the community safer for all. Again, members of criminal networks linked to Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs have been allegedly located with drugs and weapons. It is particularly concerning to us when we seize a weapon that was found to be both shortened and fitted with a silencer. There is no lawful reason for such a weapon.

“Also of concern was the location of drug making instructions. Illicit drug labs create significant risks to the neighbourhoods with the potential for fire and explosion,” Detective Inspector Brendan Smith from Task Force Maxima said.
