A heavily tattooed Rebels bikie will remain behind bars over charges of manufacturing and supplying the drug ice.

John Jamie Tozer, 32, was sent to Sydney on Thursday charged after police found two methamphetamine drug labs.

South Australia Police Crime Gangs Task Force arrested Tozer as he left a Murray Bridge Gym on Wednesday.

Shortly after the arrest, they seized heroin, mobile phones and encrypted mobile devices, cash and fraudulent identification documents from a nearby home.

Police were granted the ability to extradite Tozer to Sydney after appearing at the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Thursday.

He was escorted to the Surry Hills Police Station where he was charged with two counts of large commercial drug manufacture, two counts of large commercial drug supply and knowingly directing activities of a criminal group.

He did not apply for bail and it was formally refused, with the matter adjourned to Penrith Local Court on March 23.

Earlier, Strike Force Raptor and Drugs and Firearms investigators found a clandestine laboratory in Springwood in January 2017.

The investigator then found a clandestine laboratory at Lethbridge Park in New South Wales, with a number of people arrested and charged.

But it was not until Wednesday that Tozer was arrested by police after further investigations.

The Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang is the largest in Australia with 70 groups and more than 2000 members.

The Rebels constitution includes strict rules regarding drug use, with heroin and smoking methamphetamine banned by the club.

A $1,000 fine is in place for people disclosing information on social media and members must spend 15 hours riding a Harley Davidson motorbike.

Police have requested anyone with information, including photos and videos, to report it to the Strike Force Raptor online reporting page or call Crime Stoppers.
