MORE than $4 million in methamphetamine and cocaine have been seized in police raids on the Rebels bikie gang in WA .

More than 400 charges have been laid against members, nominees and associates of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

The haul includes methamphetamine and cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $4 million, illegal firearms and nearly half a million dollars in cash.

Seventy-eight people associated with the Rebels are facing serious charges which include aggravated armed robbery, threaten to kill, extortion, drug offences and others.

The WA Police Force Gang Crime Squad took part in a Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Day of Action across Australia and New Zealand last Wednesday.

Officers raided Rebels properties in Rockingham and Bunbury.

Police Minister Michelle Roberts said: “The McGowan Government is serious about stopping the expansion of organised crime and we’re doing everything we can to tackle these gangs.

“I want to congratulate our police officers involved in these operations,” she added.

“These raids will have a significant impact and importantly disrupt the illegal activities of the Rebels bikie gang.”
