Rebels "associate" charged after police find loaded gun

QUEENSLAND'S anti-bikie taskforce has charged a 34-year-old motorcycle gang associate in relation to police discovering a loaded gun at a home in an outer suburb of Brisbane.

Task Force Maxima officers raided a home in Cashmere on Friday, allegedly finding the loaded .22 calibre pistol.

The associate was charged with illegally possessing the weapon along with a variety of drug and stolen property offences.

Detective Inspector Phillip Stevens said:

"Locating a loaded handgun in a quiet suburban residential area, allegedly in the possession of a Rebel associate, is of significant concern to us. 

"Loaded handguns in the wrong hands can only be interpreted as being carried for criminal purposes."

A second man, 33, was charged by the same task force followiing a raid at Clear Mountain in October 15.

In that investigation, police discovered drugs, a pistol, high powered rifles, a Glock 27 pistol, revolver pistol, silencer, ammunition and a sawn-off rifle.
