BENNY WALLACE/FAIRFAX NZ A former gang member who was part of the cockfighting ring arrested by police has been charged.

At least seven people were convicted of attempts to fund criminal activity by participating in the cockfighting ring, including four former members of the Brisbane-based crew who pleaded guilty on Wednesday in Victoria Magistrates Court.
Cockfighting was legalised in the Queensland and South Australian states in December 2015, with clubs also being operated in New Zealand and elsewhere.

Detective Senior Sergeant Jason Dunmore said police were pursuing two different counts – one related to the cockfighting ring, the other related to an alleged plot to recruit and fund criminal activity.
„The investigations will continue as the matter moves forward.“
The cockfighting gang, which included members John Worsley, 35, and Tim Tregubba, 24, and was described as being invo우리카지노lved in cockfighting activities including the use of hand grenades, used in an attack that has left 19 people dead and around $1 million spent by authorities.
Two men, aged 30 and 38, from Queensland, were arrested in relation to the cockfighting case in late July.
Detective Senior Sergeant Dunmore said those arrested at the Melbourne police headquarters of regional crime unit „had been with us for several years and were not involved in any illegal activities“.
While Worsley is a former member of the crew, Tregubba is known to have had a cockfighting카지노 사이트 licence but did not hold a cockfighting licence in South Australia.
Worsley, from the Brisbane suburb of Glenelg, was charged with conspiracy to commit criminal damage, attempting to facilitate the commission of criminal damage and conspiracy to procure and assist someone to procure a criminal damage to property order. He was granted a conditional discharge on Friday.
He faces a separate charge of attempting to acquire and supply two firearms and one knife.
The pair were each held on a $2,000 warrant, with charges due to be heard in November.
