Former Rebels bikie arrested over alleged drug supply

A former Rebels bikie has been arrested amid major drug supply allegations, by the same police squad that busted his little brother three weeks ago.

Police raided the Emu Plains home of Matthew Rymer, 35, on Tuesday claiming he supplied the drug ice that was found in a Penrith home in February.

Detectives also arrested his brother Chris Rymer, 29 at his home in Sackville on June 20.

The brothers were both ­arrested by officers in Strike Force Pavasovic which was established by Strike Force Raptor to investigate the activities of criminal networks.

Both brothers were charged with drug supply along with numerous other charges.

Matthew did not apply for bail when he ­appeared in Penrith Local Court on Wednesday, where the case was adjourned to September 6.

It comes as another major crackdown revealed by police, unrelated to the Rymer brothers, yielded an astounding cache of weapons, including sub-machine guns, and cash.
