NSW police smash Lone Wolf bikie chapter

POLICE say they've dismantled the NSW north coast headquarters of the Lone Wolf bikie gang, with the arrest of 10 alleged members and associates. Officers raided 11 homes this morning in Coffs Harbour, Toormina, Sawtell and Middle Boambee, as well as the Lone Wolf clubhouse on Hulberts St in Toormina. Ten alleged bikie members were arrested in the dawn raids and are expected to be charged with a range of offences. It follows an extensive investigation by detectives from Strike Force Oriental, set up in January last year, to investigate the alleged criminal activity involving Lone Wolf members and associates. Coffs/Clarence Local Area Commander Mark Holahan says Wednesday's raids and arrests are evidence of the commitment of police to target the illegal activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs. "Strike Force Oriental, together with recent operations, is proof we are committed to reducing violent crime and the supply of illegal drugs in the community," Superintendent Holahan said in a statement today. "By ultimately shutting down this criminal syndicate we have put a significant dent in the ongoing supply of illegal drugs in our region."
