FINKS IN CHAINS
An in depth report on how police hope to use new legislation to bring criminal elements and leaders of the Finks bikie clubs under control.
THE Hells Angels are muscling in on the Gold Coast, with the outlaw motorcycle gang planning to open a tattoo studio at Robina - right in the middle of enemy territory.
The site is less than 1.5km from another studio earmarked for Arbour Lane, which police say will be a joint operation between the Finks and the Lone Wolf club.
It has stunned senior police who fear the move could push the Gold Coast bikie clubs into all-out war.
The Hells Angels have ruthlessly taken advantage of the police crackdown on the Gold Coast chapter of the Finks by moving ahead with plans to open the studio on Robina Town Centre Drive.
The Finks cannot afford to be involved in a turf war as police push to have the club declared a criminal organisation and the Hells Angels are primed to exploit any weakness.
Both studios are in a "grey area" of bikie territory falling between the Black Uhlans and the Nomads.
