COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — No bar, no party.

Danish police say members of a biker gang have called off a planned party after officers raided a new club house in western Denmark and took away the bar that had been stolen from a nearby workshop.

Anders Uhrskov of the police in Aarhus said Saturday officers found the piece of furniture when raiding a house in Lystrup, northeast of Denmark's second largest city, as part of "our preventive strategy" against organized crime groups so "they never doubt that we keep an eye on them."

Police also seized a "minor amount" of drugs and a gold chain.

Gang members declined to comment, and it was unclear whether the party would be rescheduled.
