Finks CMG members charged with rioting

OFFICERS from Taskforce Maxima have charged two participants of the Finks Motorcycle Gang with rioting.

It is alleged the men were involved in the incident which occurred at the nightclub and restaurant precinct, Surf Parade, Broadbeach on September 27, 2013.

The incident involved members from the Bandidos Criminal Motorcycle Gang and two members associated with the 66 Street Crew, affiliated with the Finks CMG.

A 28-year-old Raceview man and a 36-year-old Leichardt man have each been charged with one count of rioting and are due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning.

Detective Inspector Brendan Smith of Taskforce Maxima said these actions send a clear message to members of criminal gangs.

"We are here for the long haul, we will be relentless in our follow up and will take enforcement action whenever we identify evidence of offences," he said.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or 24hrs a day.
