The new police commander of the Port Stephens’ and Hunter district has issued a stern warning to bikie gangs looking to operate on his turf.
Detective Superintendent Wayne Humphrey announced in May, he would bring a zero tolerance policy to outlaw motorcycle club activity when he took up the position in the command and he is following through.
Earlier this month his officers stopped a group of Bandidos who allegedly tore into Nelson Bay on motorcycles.
Police checks on their bikes showed defects while ones carried out on a vehicle travelling with them revealed is was unregistered.
Commander Humphrey said he has no time for such antics and anyone involved in them will be dealt with by the law.
