Police are on the hunt for a fugitive who fled from home detention after allegedly cutting off his ankle monitoring bracelet in South Australia.
Simon Bekiri, a former member of the Finks MC, was granted strict conditional bail after being charged over a shooting and bashing in Adelaide’s western suburbs in September last year.
Bekiri, 38, had been arrested at Sydney Airport after arriving back in Australia from Thailand. He was extradited by SA Police to Adelaide but was granted home detention bail on the condition of being monitored with an ankle bracelet.
It’s now been alleged he’s cut his monitoring bracelet off and is on the run in a white Mercedes.
Police have issued a warrant for Bekiri’s arrest, urging anyone with assistance to contact police.
The former bikie was due in court today and his lawyer reportedly told the magistrate a debtor was seeking payments from Bekiri.
He is described as being 38 years old, 172cm tall, with a solid build and weighing 90kg. He has short brown hair and was last known to have a goatee.
