Police have seized a large amount of drugs, cash and firearms in a series of raids on properties linked to the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

 

The WA Police Force Gang Crime Squad took part in a 'day of action' across Australia and New Zealand last Wednesday, which saw raids on Rebels properties in Rockingham and Bunbury.

Police Minister Michelle Roberts has welcomed the news.

"The McGowan Government is serious about stopping the expansion of organised crime and we're doing everything we can to tackle these gangs," she said.

"I want to congratulate our police officers involved in these operations.

"These raids will have a significant impact and importantly disrupt the illegal activities of the Rebels bikie gang."
