KNUCKLE dusters, a zombie knife and steroids have been seized from the homes of suspected Outlaw bikie gang members as part of Operation Jerichos, a covert police operation in the north-west.
Strike Force Raptor detectives raided three homes in Tamworth, South Tamworth and Kootingal in the early hours of Friday morning and served six Firearm Prohibition Orders.
Police will continue to crackdown on criminal networks and target the unlawful possession of firearms, Oxley Police District commander Superintendent Kylie Endemi said.
"With the assistance of Strike Force Raptor, Oxley Police District will continue to run these high-impact operations not only to target members and associates of outlaw motorcycle gangs, but also to disrupt their activities," she said.
"We will not tolerate public acts of violence, or any activity, that creates fear and puts the safety of our community at risk.
"I would like to stress to the community that any information you might be able to provide about criminal activity in the area is extremely valuable.
"We rely on the community to be our eyes and ears on the street, and if you have any information that could help with our investigation we want to speak to you."
After the firearm orders were handed out, Oxley Police District officers searched and seized weapons and an amount of steroids from three homes in Tamworth, one in Kootingal and another two in Gunnedah.
Operation Jerichos was established by Oxley Police District officers in September to target the disruption of Outlaw motorcycle gang related crime in the area.
Superintendent Endemi said police are extremely focused on the illegal and unlawful possession of firearms and the impact on the community.
"Our high-level, high-impact operations such as this will continue, our focus remains strong," she said.
"We will continue to disrupt criminal networks and all kinds of criminal activity within our community."
Investigations under Operation Jerichos continue.
Police urge anyone with information about criminal activity in the area to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
