Wanted NSW bikie found in South Australia

A former Newcastle bikie wanted over a parole violation has been found in Adelaide after a three-month search during which he mocked NSW police.

David Brooks, 48, was expected to report to police in Newcastle after being released on parole after serving time for drug offences, but never showed.

In the following weeks, he used social media and online videos to taunt the detectives trying to find him.

Brooks was arrested by South Australian Police at Gawler, north of Adelaide, on Wednesday and charged under a NSW parole warrant.

He's due to appear in Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Newcastle detectives are due to travel to SA within days to seek his extradition to NSW.
