Lone Wolf bikies await trial over significant crimes

TWO members of Coffs Harbour's Lone Wolf bikie gang are expected to join 10 others awaiting trial over some of the most significant crimes in the region's recent criminal history.

So far, ten members and associates charged with participating in a criminal group and various drug offences have been committed for trial on April 28.

James Fletcher and Paul Pincham were expected to join them on Tuesday but the case was adjourned until December 10.

Mr Fletcher, who remains in custody, will be back in court the following day to be committed to the District Court over the near fatal bashing of a man across the road from the Park Beach McDonalds.

He is also accused of threatening to kill his former partner and is one of five Lone Wolf members and associates charged over a violent Father's Day home invasion which left a Cook Dve man with critical head injuries.

A separate trial is expected to be listed for late next year.

Mr Fletcher, Nathan Ryan, Bowen Hedges, and sergeant at arms Michael Why remain behind bars.

Co-accused Wade Hallgath also recently had his bail revoked.

Club president Neville Luck, Dean Allgood, Saia Militoni, Paul Pincham, Daniel Yilas, Jason Shipman and Billy Ballard are on bail on the condition they have no contact with each other.

All charges against the 12 stem from a police operation code named Strike Force Oriental, which effectively dismantled the Coffs Harbour Lone Wolf chapter last year.

The April trial is expected to run for two months.
