No word on bid for freedom for Yandina Five member

A SUNSHINE Coast man who has been kept in solitary confinement since his arrest more than a month ago will have to wait another day to learn if his bid for freedom has been successful.

Paul Jeffery Lansdowne, 57, had his bail application heard yesterday in the Brisbane Supreme Court.

Lansdowne is one of five men dubbed the Yandina Five who were arrested and charged under the state's tough new anti-bikies laws after he was caught having a beer with his four co-accused at a Sunshine Coast hotel.

Lansdowne, along with Steven Michael Smith, 28, are the only members of the group who remain behind bars after Joshua Shane Carew, 30, was granted bail earlier in the day.

Two other men, Scott Michael Conly, 36, and Dan Whale, 26, were granted bail by the Brisbane Magistrates Court late last year.

Lansdowne, Smith and Carew are facing serious drug trafficking charges for their alleged involvement in methamphetamine production and distribution in association with the Rebels Motorcycle Club between January, 2010 and July, 2013.

Justice John Byrne adjourned the matter.

He said he would deliver his judgment today at 2.15pm.
