POLICE have seized drugs from the Drome Street brothel during an operation targeting outlaw bikies. 

Members of Strike Force Raptor targeted members of the Bandidos in Albury on Wednesday and Thursday as they headed to Tasmania. 

They raided a prospect’s home in Kooba Street, North Albury, as part of a firearm prohibition order search on Wednesday. 

Police blocked streets during the raid. 

The brothel was also searched, with drugs found at the property. 

Members of the bikie gang squad also searched homes at Springdale Heights and Corowa, and five gang members’ hotel rooms in Albury, on Thursday. 

The Corowa home had 37 cannabis plants, dried marijuana, a Taser and homemade mace. 

“Inquiries are continuing into the items and charges are expected,” a police spokeswoman said. 

It followed a traffic operation involving multiple units and Victorian police officers on the Hume Highway on Wednesday as gang members arrived in Albury. 

Officers issued 35 traffic infringement notices, defected 14 vehicles, and grounded 10 motorbikes. 

The bikes had to be towed from the area. 

The investigation is ongoing.
