Thai police have arrested three Australians they say are members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, seizing guns, swords and a sports car.

Police in the seaside town of Pattaya searched five luxury houses on Wednesday, arresting the three Australians and a Canadian for several alleged offences.

Police Major General Surachet Hakpal said the men are believed to be members of the Hells Angels, which he said are involved in illegal drugs, human trafficking, extortion and money laundering in Thailand.

"These people entered Thailand, married Thai women, were without regular jobs, but had luxury houses and cars and spent lavishly," Major General Surachet said, according to the Bangkok Post.

Police said two of the men tested positive for drugs and will face charges before being deported.

Thai authorities cancelled the visas of four more foreigners believed to be members of the Hells Angels.

The raids come almost two years after the kidnap and murder of an Australian Hells Angels boss in Pattaya.

His Australian bodyguard was sentenced to death for the crime.
