ALLEGED armed robber Luke James Weier fronted Lismore Local Court again yesterday, in relation to an attempted robbery at Legume last year.

The 21-year-old is accused of firing a shot through the window of the local convenience store in the early hours of October 27.

He also stands accused of waking the husband and wife owners of the Legume store by smashing the front window before getting into a struggle with the husband, who was trying to wrestle the rifle from him.

Weier is then said to have fled the scene and nothing was taken from the store.

The Warwick resident and former Killarney man was extradited to New South Wales after his arrest in early May.

He was refused bail in Warwick and after his first appearance at Lismore, due to the serious nature of the charges and the risk that he might fail to show up at court.

Weier remains in custody and his matter has been adjourned until August 7 in the Lismore Local Court.
