Police Minister Mark Ryan said the arrests of two men on the Gold Coast yesterday, including a confirmed OMCG member, was another example of the outstanding success of Taskforce Maxima.

A police search of a stolen Mercedes SUV at Robina located Mongols OMCG patches in the front of the car and a suitcase containing 44 designer dresses with price and security tags still attached, in the rear of the car.

“The Palaszczuk Government’s tough, new laws are disrupting and dismantling outlaw motorcycle gangs and organised crime networks across the state,” Mr Ryan said.

“Taskforce Maxima and other specialist units have remained relentless in their pursuit of organised crime with these new laws and are continuing to exploit every opportunity to target criminal networks.

“We are already seeing great things from Queensland Police regarding the wearing of prohibited items in public.

“I have been informed by the Police Commissioner that this new law, banning colours and patches associated to an Outlaw Motorcycle Group, is having a considerable impact.”

“The Palaszczuk Government’s Serious and Organised Crime Amendment Bill 2016, passed in the Queensland Parliament last year, will see some of the toughest laws across the country come into effect over the coming month.

“The Palaszczuk Government is giving police the resources they need to tackle serious and organised crime,” Minister Ryan said.

“We have invested more than $62 million to give our law enforcement agencies the tools and technology they need to tackle organised crime, including child exploitation, boiler room fraud, drug trafficking and overt criminal groups, such as outlaw motorcycle gangs.”
