Queensland’s police minister says not one recreational motorcyclist has been charged under the state’s bikie crackdown.
More than 900 bikies and associates have been charged since a Gold Coast brawl sparked a crackdown on criminal gangs in Queensland.
Police Minister Jack Dempsey has told parliament that everyone arrested under Operation Resolute was linked to a criminal gang.
“We’ve seen 946 criminal motorcycle gang members – for the sake of the opposition, not one recreational rider – and their associates, charged with 2274 offences,” he said.
Operation Resolute was established in September last year after a brawl outside a Gold Coast restaurant prompted Bandidos bikies to storm the Southport police station.
Mr Dempsey said police shut down a large criminal operation on Monday night.
