Five people have been arrested near the Victoria-NSW border as part of ongoing investigations into alleged drugs and firearms trafficking by two outlaw motor cycle gangs.

The raids were part of investigations spanning two states targeting the Black Uhlans and Gypsy  Jokers outlaw motorcycle gangs.

Nine properties were raided in Wodonga and one in Albury, a mix of residential and business premises.

Four men aged 54, 52, 39 and 28 along with 22-year-old woman all from Wodonga were arrested.

Detective Acting Inspector Stuart Bailey said police will continue to put pressure on the gangs.

“Outlaw motorcycle gangs don’t only operate in our major cities, they also have a criminal presence in our regional centres,” he said.

“We know these groups have long histories of engaging in a range of crimes, particularly those linked to firearms, and the indiscriminate nature of their crimes presents a significant risk to the community.”
