Former bikie to face court over Isabella Plains shooting

Ian Bushnell 18 September 2018
A former bikie gang member will face court today over a fire and shooting at an Isabella Plains house last year.
The 21-year-old man, who is currently remanded in custody for unrelated matters, will face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with arson, discharging a firearm, endangering life and unauthorised possession/use of a firearm.
ACT Policing said that on Friday 10 March 2017, police responded to a report of a vehicle fire at a residence on Ellerston Avenue, Isabella Plains, where they subsequently found gunshot damage to the house.

Detective Superintendent Scott Moller said Taskforce Nemesis continued to investigate historic incidents involving criminal gangs and issued a warning to gang members or anyone thinking about joining a gang.

“If you have been involved in any of these violent offences detectives will continue to pursue you,” he said.

“You could be tapped on the shoulder at any time and we’ll act on any new information received from the public.

“I also warn anybody, particularly young men, who are considering joining these criminal gangs that you will be used by the gangs to perform the most violent crimes, but abandoned by them when caught.”

Police are urging anyone who may have any information about this incident that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
