Two alleged Rebels bikies are facing further charges of manufacturing methylamphetime (Speed and Ice) as police continue a crackdown on outlaw motorcycle gang activies.

The men are behind bars and are due to appear before the Lismore Local Court on Tuesday, 7 July.

The extra charges were laid by officers from Strike Force Badim, which was formed in 2014 by investigators attached to the Richmond Local Area Command drug unit, to investigate the alleged supply of methylamphetamine by outlaw motorcycle gang members in the region.

Since December 2014, police have executed ten search warrants and arrested and charged seven Rebels members as well as one associate.

Following further inquiries, officers attached to Strike Force Badam laid additional charges against two men.

A 34-year-old man, and Rebels OMCG Ballina chapter president, was charged with manufacture large commercial quantity of prohibited drug and supply large commercial quantity of prohibited drug.

A 47-year-old man was charged with manufacture commercial quantity of prohibited drug.

Both men remain in custody and are due to appear before Lismore Local Court on Tuesday 7 July 2015.

To date, Strike Force Badim has made 13 arrests in relation to its ongoing investigations.
