BANNED greyhound trainer Tom Noble will spend at least another night in a cell before learning if he'll be allowed bail on the most recent charges levelled against him.

The 69-year-old has been charged with breaching his bail conditions by continuing to trial dogs on his training track at Churchable, in the Lockyer Valley.

Police have further alleged that Noble removed surveillance cameras from neighbouring properties.

The latest charges include stealing, wilful damage, trespass and breaching bail conditions.

The case was heard briefly at Ipswich Magistrates Court this morning, where a lawyer representing Noble requested a one-day adjournement.

This was granted, and it is expected that Noble's lawyers will make an application for bail on the latest charges on Wednesday.

In the meantime, Noble will remain in custody.

The disgraced greyhound trainer has previously admitted to 15 animal cruelty charges relating to the live baiting scandal that turned the industry on its head last year.

He is still awaiting sentencing on those charges.
