Police in Perth have raided almost 20 properties belonging to members of bikie gangs

Police in Perth have raided almost 20 properties belonging to members of bikie gangs as they investigate an attempted murder and an ongoing feud between two clubs.

Police Assistant Commissioner Nick Anticich says the raids have uncovered a significant amount of drugs, firearms and ammunition.

"It is our firm belief, based on police intelligence and experience, that this is about turf war, power and control of illicit activities in this State," he said.

Earlier today a 30 year-old member of the Rock Machine motorcycle gang was charged with the attempted murder of the Rebels Motorcycle Gang president Nick Martin.

Mr Martin was shot and wounded in the left arm outside his home in Balcatta last Friday.

The man appeared in the Perth Magistrate's Court this morning and was not required to plead to a charges of attempted murder, wilfully destroying evidence and possessing an unlicensed firearm.

The Magistrate suppressed his name and remanded him in custody to return to court next month.
