Wanted Gold Coast bikie found hiding out in remote town

A BIKIE released on parole after being jailed for a range of offences on the Gold Coast has been arrested on a return to prison warrant in the Northern Territory.

Jake Thaller, 28, was allegedly found hiding out in the outback town of Katherine, 320km southeast of Darwin, on Saturday.

The 28-year-old patched member of the Saturdarah Outlaw Motorcycle Gang had allegedly fled to the Northern Territory after being released from jail on court ordered parole.


He had been sentenced to 15 months’ imprisonment after being convicted in Southport Magistrates Court on a range of offences, police said.

A return to prison warrant was issued for Thaller last week after Queensland Police revoked his bail.

He was found and arrested by Northern Territory police on Saturday before being conveyed to Darwin.

Detectives from Queensland’s Taskforce Maxima travelled to Darwin on Wednesday successfully applied to have Thaller extradited back to Queensland.

Detective Inspector Glen Donaldson said police would continue to work with other government agencies to target outlaw motorcycle gangs.

“This arrest highlights the commitment of the Queensland Police Service and Queensland Corrective Services in continuing to protect the community by enforcing breaches of the law committed by members of outlaw motorcycle gangs,” he said.
