Christopher 'Badness' Binse, who held police at bay for 44 hours in a siege, also stalked a man he suspected had shot former Bandidos enforcer Toby Mitchell, it can now be revealed.

Binse, 45, on Monday pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court to charges related to the siege at his Keilor East home in May 2012, an armed robbery in Laverton two months earlier and of possessing a cache of weapons that year.

The court heard on Monday that a semi-automatic pistol, silencer and laser pointer were found in Binse's Land Rover on January 9, 2012, when it was parked in the vicinity of the home of a man with whom he shared "bad blood".

Two more men wanted over Gold Coast bikie killing

Two more alleged bikies will be arrested over the stabbing murder of Gold Coast Bandidos associate Max Waller, police say.

It is alleged three men were involved in Mr Waller’s killing outside Broadbeach apartment complex Carmel by the Sea on June 23 last year.

There was a major breakthrough in the case when cage fighter and alleged Mongols associate Wade Yates-Taui was arrested in the US at the weekend.

The 22-year-old was arrested by US marshals in California shortly before midnight on Friday.

He will be extradited from the US charged with unlawful killing.

Queensland detectives are due to travel to Los Angeles in the coming days, but police still have their sights on two other men on home soil.

Detective Superintendent Steve Holahan from the state’s Homicide Investigation Unit said police intend to charge Mr Yates-Taui’s two alleged accomplices with murder.

SANFORD -- A 40-year-old Longwood biker will spend at least 20 years in prison following the shooting deaths of three members of the Florida Warlocks, a rival biker group, during a shootout at the VFW hall in Winter Springs.

Eckert was found not guilty on one count of second-degree murder.

He's to be sentenced Monday at 1:30 p.m.

Coones And Sincox Rousted In Laughlin (vids)

Nevada police continue to consider motorcycle club members fair game.

Last night at the annual Laughlin River Run approximately 40 police including a Swat team shut down adjoining vendor booths operated by a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and the Vagos Motorcycle Club.

According to a usually informed and reliable source the Lucky 7 Motorsports booth owned by Vago Michael Raymond Sincox and the So Cal Clothing Line Booth run by well known Hells Angel Rusty Coones were closed and the operators were compelled to pack up and leave. Both booths were on property owned by the Pioneer Hotel. Police called the booths “potential threats,” presumably because the two operators belong to different motorcycle clubs and members of those clubs have confronted one another in the past.
