The police are chasing the boyfriend of the glamorous bicycling widow Jade Heffer.
Alan ‘Ahmad’ Alameddine, who fell in love with 28-year-old Ms Heffer after she watched her husband Yusuf Nazlioglu, a lone wolf, brutally shot to death, is wanted for felony firearms offences.
On Wednesday night, police asked for public assistance in finding the 33-year-old man who was alleged to be part of the notorious Alameddine clan, but urged people not to go near him.
The police suspect that the Alameddine criminal network is behind a series of gang murders and the importation of illicit drugs.
A posted photo shows the wanted man with long dark hair and a short beard below his chin but with a shaved upper lip.
He is described as Mediterranean/Middle Eastern in appearance, about 180cm tall and of a medium build.
Police went to Alameddine’s family home in Greenacre, in the south-west Sydney suburb of Greenacre, at around 6am on 3 August to execute a firearms ban order.
Alan ‘Ahmad’ Alameddine (pictured), boyfriend of glamorous bike-riding widow Jade Heffer, is on the run after allegedly fleeing a police gun check.
Alameddine is believed to have jumped over the back fence when she saw officers arrive outside Narelle Crescent’s property, with officers only finding Ms. Heffer and other family members inside the home.
“Officers believe a 33-year-old male occupant fled the scene,” a NSW Police spokesman said.
A perimeter was established and the help of the Dog Squad, Public Order & Riot Squad and PolAir was sought in locating the man.
Police later searched the property and allegedly discovered a firearm, an encrypted phone, and other items, which were seized for forensic examination.
At around 12:30pm, Ms Heffer and another woman, aged 35, were arrested at a service station on nearby Waterloo Road and taken to Bankstown Police Station.

Ms Heffer had only been married to 40-year-old Nazlioglu for six months when he was shot dead in front of her in the underground car park of their Rhodes apartment complex in western Sydney on June 27 of the year past.
In the days after her husband’s death, Ms. Heffer appeared to turn to her Islamic faith, shifting her typical online posts from selfies in form-fitting dresses with plunging necklines to photos of herself in a hijab and sharing Quran quotes.
Now, just over a year after the loss of her husband, and social media makeover, Ms. Heffer has returned to the limelight after striking up a relationship with an alleged member of the infamous network. Sydney criminal Alameddine.
It is understood that they are expected to be charged with hindering the investigation.
Greenacre Street has been home to a series of shootings in the past 12 months as Sydney grapples with a bloody gang war.
Last month, criminal defense lawyer Mahmoud Abbas was shot on his driveway just before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday as he was leaving his home and heading to his car.
While miraculously surviving after undergoing three surgeries, underworld figure Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad was not so lucky when he was shot on the same street in 2022 while visiting an associate.
Six men have since been charged in Ahmad’s alleged murder, while police continue to investigate the “targeted attack” on Abbas, who counts former Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer among his high-profile clients.
Abbas also represented four men accused of kidnapping an associate of the Hamze clan – rivals of the Alameddines – off Sydney’s northern beaches in January.

In the days after her husband’s death, Ms. Heffer drastically changed the nature of her social media posts: She shared photos of herself in a hijab and Quran scripts.

Ms Heffer’s arrest comes just weeks after a NSW Raptor Squad officer raided her north Parramatta home and arrested three Alameddine gang associates over a wild brawl at Westfield in Sydney’s CBD in June.
Ms. Heffer is not charged with any wrongdoing, nor with having any knowledge of the alleged events during the fight at the Pitt St shopping center that led to the arrests.
Mr. Nazlioglu, 40, had been out of prison for just under 12 months, after serving three years for possession of firearms, when he was brutally shot in front of his wife, a fitness instructor.
The couple struck up a whirlwind romance shortly after his release and married four months after his release, in January 2022.
It is widely believed that Nazlioglu’s death came because he was previously accused of murdering former Comanchero leader Mick Hawi, who was shot dead outside Fitness First Gym in Rockdale in February 2018, in a cemetery.
Two men, ages 25 and 30, have since been charged in Nazglioglu’s death and their affairs continue before the courts.
Anyone with information on Alameddine is urged to contact crime deterrents.
Mahmoud Abbas was shot multiple times outside his home in Greenacre, south-west Sydney, last week.
Abbas is expected to make a full recovery after being shot several times. He has undergone three surgeries.
