TWO alleged Nomads members have been charged under the state’s new legislation outlawing gang members from associating with each other.
Gang squad detectives said they attended a house in Durawi Street, Pemulwuy, yesterday (Tuesday), about 6.40pm, and arrested two men, aged 21 and 31.
Police said that since the introduction of the new laws last month, they had issued ‘‘consorting’’ warnings to a number of gang members and associates.
The two men arrested yesterday had been warned previously not associate with each other, police said, and were issued with court attendance notices when found together.
The 31-year-old man was charged with habitually consort with convicted offenders after warning.
He was granted conditional bail to appear on Wednesday, June 27, at Downing Centre Local Court, where he will also face a prior consorting charge issued via future court attendance notice on May 10.
The 21-year-old man was charged with the same offence to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on the same day.
