Coffin Cheater caught allegedly smuggling drugs in his undies

A member of the Coffin Cheaters Outlaw Motorcycle Club has faced Bunbury Magistrate’s Court today after police allegedly caught him with methamphetamine hidden in his underwear.

The Western Australia National Anti-Gangs Squad (NAGS) intercepted the man near Bunbury yesterday afternoon.

Police searched the hire car he was driving and allegedly found $15,030 cash in the centre console, as well as an extendable baton. 

“When officers searched the man, they allegedly found 160 grams of methamphetamine hidden in his underwear and $1660 cash in his wallet,” Police said in a statement.

“The amount of methamphetamine seized could have been sold to 1,600 people in WA.

“WA NAGS and WA Police Force Gang Response Team officers then searched the man’s Kenwick home and allegedly found a further $23,800 in cash, an electronic cash counter, approximately 28 grams of cannabis, drug paraphernalia, an alleged stolen motorcycle and Coffin Cheaters OMCG regalia.”

The man was refused police bail to appear in court today charged with drug-related charges, possession of stolen property and possession of a prohibited weapon.

He is expected to appear in court again on July 12.

AFP Acting Inspector Chris Colley said Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs were a significant target for the AFP during Operation Ironside and the AFP is continuing to work with WA Police and other partners to attack any criminal offending involving these groups.

“Criminals distribute drugs at the expense of the Australian community,” AFP Acting Inspector Colley said.

“Meth destroys the lives of those who use it, and causes other crimes including assaults and robberies, while drivers impaired by this substance are a danger to everyone else on the roads.

“We will do what we can to prevent these drugs from causing harm in our communities and prosecute those involved in the illicit trade.”
