Bikie enforcer kicked out of two countries in one day

Possibly with his Fink tail already firmly between his legs after being refused entry to a gang holiday in Bali, bikie enforcer Jesse Johnston got off a plane at Sydney Airport only to be met by more authorities.

This time the 22-year-old, who likes to go by the social media moniker Alphonse Fink, denied he was a member of one of the most feared bikie gangs in Australia and just wanted to head home to the Central Coast.

But, after Australian Border Force officials found clothing sporting the gang's distinct "rat Fink" emblem, Johnston was told his entry was being denied and he was deported to his native New Zealand.

Because, despite his denials, Johnston had been quickly moving through the national ranks of the Finks and, despite his age, was already the sergeant-at-arms of the gang's Newcastle chapter.

However, Johnston's double knock-back on Monday is not isolated.

NSW bikie sergeant faces court over murder

A senior NSW Rebels bikie has appeared in court over the "particularly violent" fatal bashing of a man on the Central Coast.

The head injuries suffered by Clint Starkey, a bikie associate, during the assault at the Caltex outlet in Peats Ridge in early April were so severe he never recovered.

The 42-year-old died in Gosford Hospital two months later.

Adam Symons, a 36-year-old sergeant-at-arms of the outlaw motorcycle gang, was arrested during dawn raids across the Central Coast region on Tuesday.

He was charged with Mr Starkey's murder, and did not apply for bail when the matter was mentioned briefly in Gosford Local Court on Wednesday.

As Symons was being questioned, police released CCTV footage showing the lead-up to the brutal assault, and called on anyone with information to come forward.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin described the crime as particularly violent.

Rebels bikie charged for allegedly moving cars with forklift

A SENIOR Rebels bikie has been charged by police after allegedly using a forklift to stack cars blocking the entrance to a bike storage unit.

Police claim that the senior member of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang picked up a Holden Rodeo ute and dropped it on top of a Daewoo Matiz after the owners failed to move them.

A police spokesman said that the incident happened on Friday last week after more than 50 motorcycles had participated in the Rebels’ national run in Tasmania.

After organising for the bikes to be transported by truck to a Malaga factory unit, they had asked occupants of the neighbouring unit to move the cars so that the bikes could be off-loaded.

The occupant says the two cars could not be moved because of mechanical issues and when staff returned to work on Monday morning, they discovered the vehicles had been stacked.
