"We were required to force entry to those premises. I can't really go into detail as to how we did it," Superintendent Doug Fryer told radio 3AW today.

"This is part of our ongoing focus around outlaw motorcycle gang criminality and certainly Victoria Police is continuing to take affirmative action to prevent, detect and disrupt organised criminality among OMCG clubs, an we will continue to do so."

Police are still searching the properties this morning.
