Conditional bail for disgraced greyhound trainer

Disgraced Queensland greyhound racing trainer Tom Noble has been given conditional bail.

Police arrested Noble, 69, of Churchable, last week after he allegedly damaged police surveillance cameras on his neighbours' property.

Footage allegedly showed Noble operating a training lure arm on his property six times between May 2015 and March 2016.

Noble was warned off for life by Racing Queensland and he pleaded guilty to 15 animal cruelty charges after a Four Corners report last year exposed live baiting on his property, and that of others, in three states.

He was also facing charges of contravening a prohibition order, wilful damage, trespass and stealing.
