Tuesday 21 July 2020, while the 42-year-old man and the 22-year-old man are next due to appear in the same court on Friday 10 July 2020.
Detective Senior Sergeant Jason Beesley said this seizure showed how bikie clubs go about their criminal business.
“Gang Crime Squad detectives continue to target outlaw motorcycle gangs — their members and associates — who are heavily involved in the illicit drugs trade. The fact there is 3kg of cocaine and 1kg of meth involved suggests those arrested are not at the street-level – they are much higher up the chain of command,” he said.
“Our investigation into the broader criminal networks involved is ongoing and we will relentlessly pursue all those people who attempt to fill our streets with harmful drugs.”
