THE men accused of being the key players in the Coffs Harbour chapter of the Lone Wolf Outlaw Motorcycle Gang are before the courts

THE men accused of being the key players in the Coffs Harbour chapter of the Lone Wolf Outlaw Motorcycle Gang are before the courts facing a raft of drug supply, violence and firearm charges. Fourteen gang members and associates, arrested by police under Strike Force Oriental have been publicly named. The men are facing almost 70 charges in the wake of their arrests during simultaneous dawn raids in Coffs Harbour, Coramba, Middle Boambee, Sawtell and Toormina on Wednesday, April 4. The men facing more serious charges have been remanded in custody while the accused are yet to enter pleas as police prepare their evidence against the men.  Police allege the gang of bikies and their associates coordinated drug supply on the Coffs Coast and were behind a series of violent offences, including a home invasion in Cook Dr last September where three people were assaulted and one man was seriously injured. It's also alleged two of the men were found in possession of illegal handguns. During the raids police allegedly seized a .345 revolver and a semi-automatic 9mm pistol.
