A SENIOR Rebels bikie has been charged after an incident at a Malaga factory.
On Friday October 27, more than 50 motorcycles that had participated in the Rebels’ national run in Tasmania were transported by truck to a Malaga factory unit.
Rebels gang members asked an occupant of a neighbouring factory unit in the industrial complex to move vehicles so that the motorcycles could be off-loaded.
The occupant moved a vehicle but another two could not be moved because of mechanical issues.
Staff at the business left work for the week and when they returned to work on Monday morning they discovered one vehicle, a Holden Rodeo utility, had been stacked on top of another, a Daewoo Matiz.
Both vehicles sustained significant structural and mechanical damage worth more than $10,000.
It is alleged a 47-year-old Balcatta man, who is a senior Rebels member, used a forklift to pick up one vehicle and stack it on top of the other.
He was charged with one count of criminal damage.
He is due to appear in the Midland Magistrate’s Court on November 30.
