Mongols Bikie Shane Bowden was picked up in a limousine on his release from Loddon Prison, near Castlemaine in Central Victoria this week.
He was met by an entourage of fellow gang members on their motorbikes, who travelled an hour and a half from Mebourne to meet Bowden with the limousine, reported the Herald Sun.
Bowden and then-girlfriend and fitness model Aysen Unlu were charged with aggravated assault and robbery after a home invasion in South Yarra in 2015.
During the attack he stormed into the home wearing night vision goggles armed with a hunting knife, demanding cash from the terrified occupants.
He kicked one of the victims int he face and stomped on a man’s head before fleeing with around $700 in cash, reported The Age.
The pair were dressed in all camouflage and hiding behind a tree less than a kilometre from the home when they were arrested by police.
The senior Mongols member has been in jail since the incident, while Unlu was granted an 18 month community correction order.
Despite being behind bars, he still managed to attract attention after a racey photograph of a prison-guard was found inside his jail cell at Port Phillip Prison in 2017.
The prison stint, isn’t his first time behind bars either, with Bowden having spent seven years in jail after an infamous bikie brawl in Queensland in 2006.
When he was a member of the Finks club he shot Melbourne bikie Christopher Wayne Hudson during a scuffle at the Royal Pines Resort during a kick-boxing tournament.
