Bikie held on drug and firearm charges
A senior member of an outlaw motorcycle gang has faced a Gold Coast court on drug and weapon charges, including possession of a high-powered assault rifle.
Shane Treloar, 38, the sergeant-at-arms of the Lone Wolf bikie gang, was arrested by officers from Taskforce Hydra on Thursday after a raid on his home at Upper Coomera.
He appeared in Southport Magistrates Court on Friday on charges including possession of illegal weapons, among them a high-powered assault rifle, possession of ammunition and possession of methyl amphetamine.
Treloar played rugby league for Parramatta, Penrith and Souths for a number of years, mainly in reserve grade and moved to the Gold Coast to pursue his career, but gave the game away because of injury.
The case was adjourned until Tuesday and Treloar was remanded in custody.
