One of Australia’s most wanted men, Ahmed Alameddine, is arrested as police raid a house in Sydney’s eastern suburbs – a month after his glamorous girlfriend was charged.
Police attacked a prominent member of the Alameddine crime family in Sydney’s eastern suburbs after a month on the run.
Ahmad Alameddine was arrested on Tuesday following a police operation at a residence in South Coogee, Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
The 33-year-old is said to have fled from police after jumping the fence at his parents’ home in Greenacre as crack officers stormed in.
It would appear that Mr. Alameddine tried again to flee from the police on Tuesday.
A police spokesman confirmed that a person was arrested following a search warrant at a house in Bundock St around 9am.

Officers were still on scene in Coogee early Tuesday afternoon.
Mr Alameddine’s partner, Jade Heffer, was arrested and charged with obstructing police following the August raid and remains behind bars.
Ms Heffer, who was previously married to slain Lone Wolf cyclist Yusuf Nazlioglu, and Mr Alameddine’s sister Susan, who was also charged with obstructing police after the raid, have not pleaded guilty and remain in front courts.
Mr Alameddine is wanted for several alleged offences, including possession of two firearms at a nearby property in June.
