Men charged under new bikie laws

THREE alleged bikies from the Caboolture area appeared in Brisbane courts on Monday, two charged under the Queensland Government's tough new bikie laws and one over the Gold Coast riot that sparked them.

Cameron James Russell, 21, was granted bailed after appearing in Roma St Magistrates Court on one charge of riot stemming from the September 27 incident that led to the Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment Act.

The man must live at his Burpengary home and reappear at the Southport court on December 13.

Two alleged associates of the Black Ulhans Criminal Motorcycle Gang appeared briefly in the Brisbane Magistrates Court where they were expected to make bail applications.

But they both decided to have their matters adjourned to the Caboolture Magistrates Court on November 15 and would instead make a bail application in the supreme court at a later date.

Narangba's Cameron Templeton, 41, is charged with two counts of extortion with intent to gain benefit with threat of detriment as a vicious lawless associate, four counts of stalking and common assault.

Deception Bay man, Nathaniel Paul Nahow, 36, is charged with stalking as a vicious lawless associate at Narangba and common assault at Mango Hill.
