Police have raided a Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang’s clubhouse in Tweed Heads as part of investigations into the alleged unlawful sale of alcohol.

Officers from Strike Force Raptor conducted a search warrant at an industrial unit on Ourimbah Road, Tweed Heads, about 7.30pm on Saturday.

During a search of the premises police allegedly located evidence of the unlawful sale of alcohol.

They dismantled the bar and seized premix bottles of spirits, beer, fridges, eskies, cash, pool tables, glassware, furniture and documents.

Police also allegedly detected breaches of essential fire safety measures and a breach of the Environment Planning and Protection Act.

No one was at the clubhouse at the time of the search and investigations are continuing.

Strike Force Raptor was established by State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad in 2009. It is a proactive and high-impact operation targeting outlaw motorcycle gangs and any associated criminal enterprises.
