Australia - POLICE formed a ring of steel around a bikie clubhouse opening party tonight as those inside judged a stripping competition.
Officers searched hundreds of partygoers before they entered the Hells Angels event.
Dozens of uniformed police and horse-mounted officers kept a close eye on the gang's newest clubhouse in Seaford – its fourth in Victoria. The police show of force comes after officers raided the clubhouse yesterday confiscating thousands worth of booze for tonight's event.
Detectives from the bikie-busting Echo Taskforce and liquor licensing taskforce Razon, as well as dozens of uniformed officers, raided the new Darkside Chapter's home.
But the party was hardly dry with loud music blaring from the club house and one witness claiming men in Hells Angels insignia had been drinking since 9am. Digital Pass $1 for first 28 Days
One police officer said there was even a stripping contest inside.
The Patrick Court premises were shot up by someone using a machine gun or semi-automatic a fortnight ago.
