Detectives have charged a Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCG) associate after a rifle, handgun, 10 replica pistols and more than $26,000 cash were seized during a joint-agency operation in the state’s north.

In January this year, detectives from the NSW Police Force and Australian Federal Police (AFP) – as part of the National Anti-Gangs Squad (NAGS) – received information relating to the unauthorised possession of firearms in Northern NSW.

Following extensive inquiries, NAGS investigators, with assistance from Strike Force Raptor, executed a search warrant at a home at Coffs Harbour from 6am today (Friday 12 February 2021).

During the search, officers seized a .22 calibre rifle, a handgun, an M4 replica rifle, 10 replica pistols and $26,140 cash.

All items will undergo further examination.
