BitCoin ATM owner and suspected bikies arrested in raids

POLICE have arrested a BitCoin ATM owner and suspected bikies this morning as part of 18 police raids dotted throughout the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Logan and Cairns.

A former Bandidos was also arrested.

Both are to be charged with serious drug trafficking offences.

Police will allege they were involved with dealing crystal methylamphetamine (ice) and methylamphetamine oil which can be converted into ice.

The raids are part of a two-year operation by Queensland Police and the Crime and Corruption Commission into drug trafficking, known as Operation Juliet Wave.

The operation has already seized $2.6 million dollars worth of drugs off the street, and charged 53 people "with serious offences".

The operation specifically targets "former members of the Centro Chapter of the Bandidos" motorcycle gang and associates.

On Friday, teams were backed up by Australian Federal Police and Customs officers.
