Alleged gunman still held

A FORMER Killarney resident accused of firing a bullet through the Legume Store before smashing the front door with the butt of his rifle was refused bail for the third time yesterday.

Luke James Weier, 21, appeared before Magistrate Robyn Dene at Lismore Local court on four charges including aggravated break and enter and committing a serious offence with a weapon.

Magistrate Denes refused bail citing the seriousness of the charges and the need for community protection from Weier.

His matters were adjourned until July 3 for further mention at Lismore Local Court.

Police were ordered to deliver their brief of evidence by June 18.

Weier will appear via video link from Grafton jail where he is being held.

He appeared in the Lismore court on Thursday after his arrest in Warwick and a court appearance in Warwick, which resulted in his extradition to New South Wales.

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

The Legume incident took place in the early hours of October 27.
