Man linked to alleged double murder jailed in NSW

A MAN wanted by police in relation to the alleged murder of ex-bikie Shane Ross and his business partner has been sent to prison in NSW on unrelated charges.

Garry Brush, 32, was sentenced in Tweed Local Court on Wednesday charged with affray and traffic matters dating back to February.

He was sentenced to 16 months in prison with a non-parole period of one year. Detectives will extradite Brush to Queensland when he is released. They are expected to question him about the deaths of Ross, a former Comanchero, and his Monstr business partner Cameron Martin.

Mr Ross's father, Les, has said he was "shattered" at the thought a friend could be involved in his death.

Nathan Miller and Brodie Singh, both of Coolangatta, were charged on March 19 with two counts each of ­murder in relation to Mr Ross and Mr Martin's deaths.

Singh, Miller and Brush are all alleged to be linked to the Lone Wolf Motorcycle Gang.

Singh and Miller both ­applied for bail in Brisbane ­Supreme Court this month.

During a mention of the charges for Singh and Miller in Southport Magistrates Court last month, the prosecution said the brief involved "significant telephone intercepts" and it was a "complex investigation" with an operation that's "spanned some months".
