Accused Lone Wolf bikie boss Erkan Keskin, who was arrested and charged with drug trafficking in October, has been freed on bail and subjected to house arrest inside his luxurious $10 million Double Bay mansion in Sydney’s east.
 

Keskin, known as ‘Eric the Wolf’, was arrested on October 25 and charged with drug trafficking in a Queensland court.

He was refused bail at the time, with Magistrate Joan White saying the offence was "too serious".

"He is allegedly the national president of the Lone Wolf motorcycle gang, he would be in a position to interfere with witnesses," she told Southport Magistrates Court on October 31.

But in the weeks after his arrest, the Brisbane Supreme Court granted him bail on a $700,000 surety, despite admitting that he was an out-of work builder, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Police advised against bail, with one officer telling the court Keskin would “stop at nothing to protect his drug business or to recall debts owed to him”.

Authorities allege Keskin’s wealth is a result of earnings “through the manufacture and sale of ice” and that he still oversees a number of drug labs in the Sydney area.

Keskin has been ordered not to leave his six-bedroom mansion between the hours of 8pm and 6am while his hearing continues.

He must also check in with police twice daily and wear a GPS monitor at all times.

The luxury home, complete with a swimming pool, rakes in a rental return of $7,000 per week.

The 39-year-old denied laundering money, trafficking drugs and running an ice trafficking ring for an alleged Gold Coast kingpin, instead claiming to be an “adviser to PC Crane Services”.

Keskin was dubbed the ‘naked bikie’ by the media after he was arrested in the nude in July last year.

Police were called after he was seen running around the suburb of Luddenham without clothes and carrying a gun.

Paramedics treated Keskin at the scene, wrapping him in a sheet and placing him on a stretcher.
