A newly minted biker boss who suddenly dropped dead at a police station was farewelled at his funeral in a massive show of force.
A convoy of Rebel motorcyclists was spotted escorting the coffin of fallen president Jamie Ginn through the streets of Perth on Friday.
Ginn, 50, died on October 10 at Perth Guard House after being arrested on suspicion of drug and firearms offences.
He reportedly suffered a seizure and despite desperate efforts by emergency services, Ginn could not be saved.
As many as 100 mourners showed up at Pinneroo Valley Memorial Park to say their final goodbyes to the father of two.
A heavily armed Western Australian crime squad warned funeral attendees ahead of the service that they would be required to follow a strict set of rules.

Several Rebel members on Harley-Davidson motorcycles escorted the hearse carrying Ginn’s body to the memorial.
Under regulations introduced in 2021, Rebel members were not allowed to show any gang colors or insignia while passing through.
Instead, riders were seen dressed from head to toe as they rode along the Mitchell Freeway.
The rebels were also asked to leave within 30 minutes of the ceremony, and only eight motorcycles were allowed to accompany the hearse.
Other mourners had to travel by car, and people on bicycles were not allowed to travel in groups.
Members of the WA Police Crime Branch also closely watched the funeral procession and gathered at the pub where loved ones were meeting for the first time.
They also manned the roads and set up a random breathalyzer testing site, following the bikes on their 25-minute ride.
Outside the cemetery, mourners were seen with six-packs and eskis, the so-called Western Australia reported.
Meanwhile, twenty police officers waited outside the cemetery and watched from a distance.
The rebels remembered Ginn as a “t”.rue soldier” and “proud rebel”
The rebels were also asked to leave within 30 minutes of the end of the ceremony and only eight motorbikes were allowed to accompany the hearse to the funeral
“By leading us, you have made us better people,” the group said.
“You’re in the ‘Forever’ chapter now, brother, we’re going to miss you and we’re going to ride hard.
“Our deepest condolences to our loved one’s family.
“Rebels Forever.” Eternal rebels.
It is understood that there were no problems at Ginn’s funeral.
At the time of his death, Ginn had an outstanding case in the Perth Magistrates Court relating to gang tattoos, which was due to be heard in November.
A WA Police spokesman said: “He (Ginn) was placed in Perth Watch House and subsequently charged with a number of drug and firearms offences.”
“At approximately 7 p.m., officers noticed a man in his cell suffering from a medical episode.
“By the time St. arrived John WA, immediate medical assistance was provided, but the man could not be revived.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious and, in line with standard protocol, Serious Crime Squad officers will prepare a report for the coroner.”
