Alleged bikie evaded police for more than six months

Police say they have finally caught an alleged bikie who is believed to have used fake identification to evade authorities for seven months. 

On September 23 last year Task Force Maxima - the unit dedicated to fighting bikie crime - executed a search warrant at a home in Lawnton on Brisbane's northside,

Inside they found cannabis, steroids, drug utensils, two pill press machines, ammunition and drug packaging equipment.

However, a 23 year-old man police say is associated with the Bandidos motorcycle club was not home when the raid took place. 

 

 

Now police are alleging he used false identification to evade them. 

Indeed it wasn't until April 8 this year that the man came back to the attention of authorities when police stopped a speeding car on Old Northern Road, Brendale.

A search reveled a large bag of cannabis and the driver was detained, identified and later also charged with the earlier offences relating to the raid. 

Charges include six counts of possession of dangerous drugs, receiving or possession of property obtained from trafficking or supplying dangerous drugs, personation (falsely representing self to be a person living/dead/real/fictitious), three counts of forgery, three counts of fraud, disobeying speed limit, driving uninsured and driving unregistered.

The man appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on April 9 and was remanded in custody until April 29.

Detective Inspector Phillip Stevens of Task Force Maxima said, "The arrest of the 23-year-man and the removal of the drugs, pill press machines and ammunition would be a real set back to the organised crime figures involved in this enterprise".
