POLICE have arrested and charged another man following investigations into an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang's operations on the Coffs Coast.

Strike Force Oriental - comprising officers attached to Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command - was established in January 2011 to investigate the alleged criminal activity involving members and associates of the Lone Wolf OMCG.

The Strike Force was established following a series of violent offences, including home invasions, in the region.

On Thursday, a 47-year-old man attended Coffs Harbour Police Station where he was arrested.

The man was subsequently charged with break, enter and commit serious indictable offence in circumstances of special aggravation and participate in criminal group.

He was refused bail to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court.

Strike Force Oriental officers have now arrested fourteen people and laid 65 charges following dawn raids in Coffs Harbour, Coramba, Middle Boambee, Sawtell and Toormina last Wednesday.

Further arrests are expected.
