The sister of one of Australia’s best-known motorcyclists has been charged after police allegedly found ammunition hidden under her fridge.
Asmahan Zahed, 42, the sister of Comanchero chief Tarek Zahed, was arrested at her home in Auburn, western Sydney, on Friday after heavily armed police raided it.
Police allege they found bullets hidden behind the fridge.
In a separate raid Friday at a home in Dulwich Hill, police arrested Zahed’s partner, Ihab Taoube, 45, after allegedly finding 23 vials of anabolic steroids and a loaded handgun.
He faces weapons, drug and bail violation charges.
Asmahan Zahed, sister of Comanchero chief Tarek Zahed, has been detained after a police raid on Friday.
Ms Zahed appeared at a court hearing via video from Surry Hills police station cells on Saturday.
During the Parramatta Bail Court hearing, police argued that Zahed should be denied bail because he would ‘endanger the community’. the daily telegraph informed.
The court heard that he had a community corrections order for possession of a knife and had recently completed probation for possession of a shortened firearm.
His lawyer, Ikbal Khan, told the court that a homeless friend had recently stayed at the raided house.
Heavily tattooed Zahed appeared in court with his head partially shaved and was granted bail on the condition that he live on housing commission property in Auburn.
Taoube had his bail hearing at the same court on Saturday.
The police allege that they found ammunition hidden behind the fridge in Zahed’s house.
The police requested that he be remanded in custody because he was already out on bail on domestic violence charges.
Taoube’s attorney argued that he had complied with all the reporting requirements of his current bond.
However, Taoube was denied bail and will face trial later this month.
Tarek Zahed and his younger brother Abdul are in custody charged with the alleged kidnapping and murder of Youssef Assoum in 2014.
Tarek miraculously survived a hail of bullets outside Auburn’s Bodyfit Gym in May of last year that killed the family’s other brother, Omar.
A bullet pierced Tarek directly through his eyeball and he was rushed to the hospital fighting for his life.
He was taken to surgery with 10 bullet wounds to the head and body, while Omar died at the scene.
