Accused bomb maker secures bail

ACCUSED Ipswich bomb maker Glen Charles Dell has been successful in his bail application.

Dell, 43, is accused of making a golf ball bomb that maimed a teenager in an Ipswich park earlier this year.

The teenager lost four fingers on his left hand and one finger on his right when he picked up the object he found in the park.

Dell is also charged with allegedly stockpiling a massive amount of chemicals at his rented Clay Street home which resulted in a large-scale police operation.

The Ipswich suburb was locked down for several days in May while the Queensland police bomb squad disposed of numerous homemade bomb devices.

In granting Dell bail on Friday Brisbane Supreme Court Justice Martin Daubney imposed several strict conditions on his release.

Bail conditions include he reside at a specific address, report to police three times per week, have no contact with his co-accused or any Crown witnesses and he must not possess any chemicals that could be used to make explosives.

Dell is due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court again on February 12.
