POLICE have arrested a Nicholls man, who they believe is the ACT chapter president of the Satudarah Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, after he attempted to break into a Belconnen residence on Saturday (February 15).

The alleged gang president was armed with a weapon when he attempted to break into the home at about 5.40pm.

The man left before police got to the home but they found him a short time later driving a maroon Mitsubishi Outlander.

During a search of his car police found a 38cm extendable baton and a set of metal knuckle dusters.

The man was arrested and charged with two counts of possessing a prohibited weapon.
