Hells Angels member faces court

A LOCAL Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Group member, three of his associates and a teenage girl were arrested after firearms and three stolen cars were found at Edinburgh North last week.

Just after 2.30pm last Wednesday, an Elizabeth Neighbourhood Policing Team was patrolling the industrial area in Hartfoot Crescent, Edinburgh North, when they spotted a stolen Holden sedan in a workshop car park.

The Holden had been stolen from a Mawson Lakes address the previous Saturday.

Police searched the car and located a handgun under the driver’s seat.

They subsequently searched the workshop at the property and located two other stolen cars – a Nissan sedan, stolen from Mawson Lakes, and a Nissan ute, stolen from Penfield Gardens, both on February 17.

Police also located a second handgun and silencer during the search.

Four men – a Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang member and three associates – were arrested at the premises, along with a 17-year-old
Munno Para girl, and refused police bail.

The men included a 44-year-old from Two Wells, a 52-year-old from Andrews Farm, a 52-year-old from Macdonald Park and a 30-year-old
from Munno Para.

Police did not confirm which man was a Hells Angels member.

All five people were charged with two counts of possessing a firearm without a licence, two counts of possessing an unregistered firearm, possessing a silencer and three counts of theft.

The Andrews Farm man and Munno Para man did not apply for bail and were remanded in custody to appear before Adelaide Magistrates Court on September 19.

The Two Wells man was granted bail to appear back before the Adelaide Magistrates Court, also on September 19.

The Macdonald Park man and Munno Para youth both faced their bail applications yesterday, via video link, at the Elizabeth Magistrates’ Court and Youth Court, respectively.
