Qld bikie president charged with extortion
The Gold Coast head of an outlawed motorcycle gang has been charged with assault and extortion. Police say the 22-year-old Yamba man, allegedly a president in the Nomads gang, broke into a Toowoomba home in December last year. He allegedly assaulted and extorted the 28-year-old male resident before stealing the victim's car. He'll face multiple charges including burglary with intent in Southport Magistrates Court on Friday. He is the second high profile Nomads member to be charged in two days, after police uncovered a cache of weapons including a loaded sawn-off shotgun, swords and a pen-gun at the Brisbane home of the gang's sergeant-at-arms on Thursday.
