Bikie remains in custody after no bail application
UPDATE: A former Bandidos motorcycle club member will remain in custody after appearing in Toowoomba Magistrates Court this morning.
Gary Thomas Williams, 53, appeared on two charges of possessing a dangerous drug, two weapons possession charges, obstructing police and an explosives act offence which arose from raids on his Lockrose home and Jellicoe St business yesterday.
He also appeared on charges of affray and disorderly conduct relating to an incident at the Royal Hotel in Toowoomba on November 5.
