A SE­NIOR Rebels bikie has been charged af­ter an in­ci­dent at a fac­tory. More than 50 mo­tor­cy­cles that had par­tic­i­pated in the Rebels’ na­tional run in Tas­ma­nia were trans­ported by truck to a Malaga fac­tory unit on Oc­to­ber 27. Rebels gang mem­bers asked an oc­cu­pant of a neigh­bour­ing fac­tory unit in the in­dus­trial com­plex to move ve­hi­cles so that the mo­tor­cy­cles could be off­loaded. The oc­cu­pant moved a ve­hi­cle but an­other two could not be moved be­cause of me­chan­i­cal is­sues. Staff at the busi­ness left work for the week and when they re­turned to work on Mon­day morn­ing they dis­cov­ered one ve­hi­cle, a Holden Rodeo util­ity, had been stacked on top of an­other, a Dae­woo Ma­tiz. Both ve­hi­cles sus­tained sig­nif­i­cant struc­tural and me­chan­i­cal da­m­age worth more than $10,000. It is al­leged a 47-year-old Bal­catta man, who is a se­nior Rebels mem­ber, used a fork­lift to pick up one ve­hi­cle and stack it on top of the other. He was charged with one count of crim­i­nal da­m­age. He is due to ap­pear in the Mid­land Mag­is­trates Court on Novem­ber 30.
