Rebels bikie gang members and associates have been charged after a Queensland police operation uncovered weapons, drugs and ammunition.

The president of the Rebels Logan chapter was arrested alongside six gang associates and charged with more than 50 burglary, weapon, and drug offences.

The raids across the state's southeast were part of Operation Uniform Neo launched after firearms and ammunition were stolen from an Ottaba property, northeast of Brisbane.

Several firearms were recovered as police found evidence of cannabis growth rooms and dismantled amphetamine laboratories.

Detectives seized more than 1kg of methylamphetamine (ice), 12kg of cannabis, seven firearms and a large range of ammunition.

The illegal cache of drugs and weapons were sealed in plastic bags and hidden piles of rubbish and debris.

The raids also netted about $50,000 in counterfeit currency and two stolen cars.

A 39-year-old Victoria Point man, the alleged rebels chapter president, a 50-year-old Chambers Flat man and a 35-year-old Brisbane woman were charged with more than 30 drugs and firearm offences.

Charges of drug trafficking, organised crime, and weapon offences have also been levelled against another four men, aged 27 to 48, as part of the operation.

The 39-year-old Victoria Point man is due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on Monday.

The six others arrested as part of the operation will face Queensland courts in the coming weeks.
