Police seize drugs, weapons, ammunition and cash in bikie raids

Two men have been charged after police raided houses and vehicles in Pialligo, Chisholm and Kambah this week, seizing drugs, weapons, ammunition and cash.

ACT Police executed the three search warrants, targeting the criminal activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs as part of Taskforce Nemesis. 

Police said they seized drugs likely to be cocaine and methamphetamine, weapons including a nun-chuck, anabolic steroids, ammunition and cash.

A 34 year old Chisholm man and 41 year old Pialligo man will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date charged with drug and weapons offences.

Chief Police Officer Rudi Lammers said the raids carried out were a clear warning, as Taskforce Nemesis continues to apply pressure to those involved in organised crime.

"Our message is simple: anyone who chooses to participate, or become involved with [outlaw motorcycle gangs] and their criminal activities should expect to be targeted by police and law enforcement agencies."

Assistant Commissioner Lammers said rewards of up to $2000 are available for information that leads to the successful prosecution of outlawed bikie gang members.

ACT Policing is urging anyone who may have information relating to criminal activity to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au
