Bikies: Police gang squad visits Finks Chinderah clubhouse
POLICE officers from the elite NSW Police gangs squad have paid a visit to the Finks Chinderah clubhouse.
Last week 10 officers from the squad visited the Tweed Local Area Command to assist with a drug raid on the Doon Doon property of a Finks member.
The raid netted 20kg of marijuana.
While in town, police also spoke with office bearers of the Chinderah Finks chapter to let them know they are being watched.
Gang squad boss Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis said the talks with the bikies went well.
"Police let them know what the expectations are," Det Sup Katsogiannis said.
He said the gang squad was keep a close eye on the Tweed and as many as 125 officers were ready to travel anywhere in the state for bikie-related crime.
However, there had been no signs, so far, that bikie crime would escalate on the Tweed, he said.
"We are working to make sure we don't get displacement," he said.
Riot squad officers were also available to assist with any bikie related police operations.
Det Sup Katsogiannis said the squad was working closely with Tweed police and Queensland police from Strike Force Maxima, set up to combat Gold Coast related bikie crime.
