Police on the state's north coast are investigating a boast by the late Mark 'Chopper' Read about a murder in Casino 10 years ago.

Read claimed in an interview that aired last night he killed bikie leader, Sidney Michael Collins, and buried his body near a football field in the town.

He said Collins had informed on him after being shot, then turned up at a comedy show a few years later wanting an autograph.

Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay says police will investigate.

" I think it is a pretty amazing interview and we are looking at aspects of that interview and cross referencing it with our investigations into the disappearance of Sid Collins in 2002," he said.

"We have the technology and equipment to find buried bodies.

"Police just need to look at some locations."
