Four members of an outlaw motorcycle gang will be facing charges after they were intercepted by police on the Midland Highway yesterday.
The gangsters were riding Harley Davidson motorcycles while allegedly under the influence of drugs when they were pulled over just north of Oatlands around 10:30am on Saturday.
Police say each rider returned a positive result on a roadside oral fluid test and not one of them held a licence.
Two of the riders were unlicenced, one was riding with a suspended licence and another was riding while disqualified.
Senior Sergeant Mark Williams said officers also seized the plates of the two bikes, which were unregistered, during the interception.
The gang members involved include a 52-year-old man, a 53-year-old man from Perth and two men from Mowbray aged 39 and 34.
“Tasmania Police is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our community and we will continue to proactively target and disrupt people who are members of criminal organisations,” Williams said.
“These driving behaviours put other road users at rick – criminal and anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in our state.”
Each will appear in court at a later date.
