Police briefs


POLICE divers searched the Condamine River behind a former Bandidos outlaw motorcycle clubhouse in Warwick late last week.
They found a dirty laundry basket, but failed to find any of the bikies’ “dirty laundry” as evidence in their crackdown on the gangs.
Police divers also dragged out an old photocopy machine and a few old pieces of metal. They also reported that the river bed behind the Grafton Street residence was littered with car parts.
Warwick police Detective Ryan Harmer could not reveal what the divers were seeking, but it wasn’t a body, he said.
