Washington police visited nearly 100 licensed premises and bikie clubhouses following the funeral of rebel chief Nick Martin on Wednesday, but there were no major incidents of any kind

Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said five rebels were evicted from a licensed venue at the Crown Casino on Wednesday night, but did not address the events that led to the police being called

“We were called there. You were asked to leave the premises and you did,” he said

The police were expecting other outlaw clubs to be present at the funeral, but they weren’t present

He said the police know that there is “a lot of friction” between the criminal gangs and are closely monitoring the groups

“We know there is dissent and we know there are rifts,” he said of the outlawed Bikie gangs

“When you involve people in criminal activity, they don’t always understand each other”

Mr Dawson was keen to break and disrupt the gangs and said the police would keep the pressure on them

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding his murder at Perth Motorplex on Dec. December on suspicion that the shooter might have been a professional precision sniper

The fatal shooting occurred around 8:40 a.m. on Kwinana Beach in front of hundreds of spectators, including Nick Martin’s wife Amanda and stepdaughter Stacey Schoppe
