A man has been denied bail after appearing in court, charged over the discovery of a homemade bomb at Ipswich, west of Brisbane.

Jarrod Ronald Damora, 36, is facing a number of charges, including the unlawful possession of explosives.

He was arrested yesterday after a suspicious device was found in a car at Redbank Plains.

Ipswich Magistrates Court was told an examination of the device appeared to show a PVC pipe with fireworks inside, sealed on one end with duct tape.

Damora’s application for bail was denied with the Magistrate awaiting specialist information from the police bomb squad.

The matter has been adjourned until Friday.

Damora remains in custody.

Meanwhile, a case involving two men charged over a so-called golf ball bomb incident has also been mentioned in the Ipswich Magistrates Court.

Glen Dell and Mark Tear are accused of stockpiling homemade bombs after an explosion at a West Ipswich home earlier this year in which Tear was seriously injured.

Both men are also facing charges stemming from a golf ball bomb explosion that maimed a teenager in the Ipswich suburb of Leichhardt in May.

Neither of the accused appeared in court today, but the injured teenager and his family were present.

The prosecution applied to amend the conditions of Tear’s bail to stop him from having contact with the teenager.

The court was told Tear is receiving treatment in hospital for his own injuries.

Dell remains in custody.

The matter was adjourned until next month.
