Five men with links to bikie gangs have been arrested in
Melbourne over an alleged kidnapping conspiracy.
Special Operations Group officers helped arrest the men as
part of a drug operation in Greensborough, in the city's
northeast, around 9pm, police said.
Police confirmed the men had ties to motorcycle gangs, but
would not reveal which.
The arrests come amid a crackdown on bikie gangs through a
series of raids, which police hope will prevent a potential
all-out war spilling onto the city's streets.
Four of the men were taken to Heidelberg police station for
questioning, while another was being treated at the scene of
the arrests for a medical condition, police said.
