During a search of the premises, which was being used as the clubhouse for the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, police allegedly located evidence of the unlawful sale of alcohol.
They dismantled the bar and seized premix bottles of spirits, beer, fridges, eskies, cash, pool tables, glassware, furniture and documents.
Police also allegedly detected breaches of essential fire safety measures and a breach of the Environment Planning and Protection Act.
No one was at the clubhouse at the time of the search and investigations by Strike Force Raptor are continuing.
Strike Force Raptor was established by State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad in 2009.
It is a proactive and high-impact operation targeting outlaw motorcycle gangs and any associated criminal enterprises.
