Police water down rival gang tensions

Police have raided five homes in the Tweed Heads region in the hunt for illegal weapons and ammunition as part of a crack-down on criminal motorcycle gang activity.

One man, a 50-year-old member of the Lone Wolf bikie gang was arrested in Kunghur, after allegedly hindering the search of his home.

Officers allegedly found prohibited plants and a knuckle duster at the property.

The raids were in response to recent violent acts believed to be related to tension between rival clubs, like last month's brawl outside Seagulls.
