Man extradited in relation to drug and firearm offences, NSW

A man has been extradited from Queensland over an outstanding warrant in northern NSW, NSW Police say.

Police will allege the 35-year-old man is a member of the Rebels OMCG and was wanted in NSW for an outstanding warrant relating to drug and firearm offences.

Ballina Detectives established Strike Force Belongil in 2014 to investigate criminal activity linked to the Rebels OMCG Ballina chapter.

After an appearance at Richlands Magistrate Court (7 February 2018), the man was extradited to NSW.

Officers from Richmond Police charged the man with the warrant at Tweed Heads Police Station.

He appeared in Tweed Heads Local Court yesterday (Monday 12 February 2018) and was refused bail. He is due to reappear on Wednesday 28 March 2018.
