Bikies not ten­ants: ‘Bomber’

NewsMail - - NEWS -

AFL leg­end Mark “Bomber” Thomp­son has turned the po­lice drug-traf­fick­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion on its head with a shock rev­e­la­tion sur­round­ing his re­la­tion­ship with the men liv­ing in his home.

Two men with re­ported links to out­law mo­tor­cy­cle gangs in Vic­to­ria have been charged with drug traf­fick­ing as part of the same on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion which re­sulted in Mr Thomp­son’s Port Melbourne prop­erty be­ing raided by po­lice on Fri­day, Jan­uary 5.

Po­lice al­legedly found drugs in­side the house when they ex­e­cuted a war­rant to search the 54-year-old’s ren­o­vated ware­house.

Po­lice quizzed Mr Thomp­son on Tues­day about his re­la­tion­ship with Thomas Wind­sor, who al­legedly has links to the Rebels bikie gang and was liv­ing at his Port Melbourne prop­erty.

Mr Thomp­son, who was re­leased without charge, has strongly de­nied in­volve­ment in any crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity.

Mr Wind­sor, 28, was charged with drug traf­fick­ing.

Karl Holt, who al­legedly has links to the Ban­di­dos bikie gang, also was charged with drug traf­fick­ing.

Mr Thomp­son said Mr Holt had moved in only re­cently, but said it was not a stan­dard ten­ancy ar­range­ment.

“They just moved in, you just can’t get rid of them,” he said.
