Ninth man charged with murder of Gold Coast bikie Shane Bowden

Police have arrested and charged a ninth man with the murder of Gold Coast bikie Shane Bowden.

The 47-year-old Mongols member was shot and killed in an execution-style murder in his Pimpama driveway in October last year.

Extensive investigations have been carried out this year, which has recently seen one man, then seven men arrested and charged over the last week alone.


Overnight, a ninth man has been arrested and charged, also believed to be a member of the Mongols outlaw motorcycle gang.

The 37-year-old Wanora man is expected to front court in Brisbane today.

South-Eastern Police Regional Crime Coordinator, Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith, says there could still be more people involved.

“This was a calculated and premeditated act with many people involved in varying aspects of the execution of Shane.

“There is no loyalty when you are facing a significant time behind bars away from your family and friends.

“This is the time to speak up and take advantage of the indemnity on offer and the $250,000 reward.

“I can assure the community that we will continue to identify and arrest all of those involved in this murder, no matter how long it takes, and bring each and every one of them before the courts,” Detective Superintendent Smith said.
