Epiq sporting facilities ready for summer

Lennox Head’s Clarence Property has just handed over to Ballina Shire Council the newly constructed Community & Sports Amenities Building, at the sports fields opposite Epiq Marketplace, off Hutley Drive.

Police from NSW and Queensland are set address the media after a cross-border police operation targeting the criminal activities of the Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang.

Last November, Ballina detectives began investigating an alleged drug supply operation involving members of the Rebels’ Ballina chapter.

Police inquiries indicated that members and associates of the gang were trafficking drugs from NSW over the border into Queensland where they were being sold to buyers on the Gold Coast.

Ballina Detectives contacted officers in the Queensland Police Force’s taskforce Maxima, who immediately joined the investigation and began to closely examine the gang’s activities on the Gold Coast.

Today police raided properties in NSW and Queensland, resulting in a number of arrests and the seizure of illicit drugs, firearms and weapons.

Further details will be provided later today.
