Operation Falcon 2018 cross border operation targets OMCG members

Today, police from Queensland and New South Wales, the Australian Federal Police and Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) closed a joint operation aimed at disrupting outlaw motorcycle and organised crime gang members and their associates, Queensland Police say.

Operation Falcon 2018 involved police from Queensland Police Service’s Taskforce Maxima, Major and Organised Crime Squad (Gold Coast), Gold Coast Rapid Action and Patrols Group and PSRT.

The cross-border operation targeted OMCG activity in the Tweed-Byron Police District and southeast Queensland corner and was primarily designed to bring police and their partner agencies together in collaboration to effectively target the activities of OMCG members and their associates.

Queensland Police executed a number of search warrants on the Gold Coast and seized drugs and weapons. Police and members of QCS Community Corrections also conducted drug testing on OMCG members during the operation.

A 30-year-old Lone Wolf member was charged with one count of contravene domestic violence order and two counts of use carriage service to make threats. Cannabis and utensils were also located at a Burleigh Waters address.

“This operation highlights our unwavering commitment to address the threat of serious and organised crime through strong collaborative partnerships with our government and law enforcement partners, both within Queensland and inter-State. Border are no longer a barrier to us and we will pursue criminal gangs and individual members to disrupt and deter those criminal networks that pose a risk to the safety of Queensland,” Detective Inspector Glen Donaldson of Queensland Police Service’s Major and Organised Crime Squad (South Eastern Region) said.
