After the arrest, officers executed a search warrant at a home in Wetherill Park, where they seized 25kg of ice valued at an estimated $22 million.

Police will allege in court that he was involved in planning Brownie’s death with the 49-year-old set to appear in Fairfield Local court on July 6.

Ahmad, also known as Sydney’s ‘Mr Big’, was shot dead on April 27 on a suburban street in Greenacre, south-west of the city.

Friends of the murdered underworld boss – who had a $1 million bounty on his head – and detectives said they were not shocked by his horrific death.

He had been warned repeatedly when he was released from prison six months before his death after serving a five-year sentence for killing a gang member.

Ahmad had extorted fellow underworld figures both in and out of prison, demanding that at least one inmate pay $250,000 to ensure his safety.

“He was warned in the past that he was a marked man and as a result he ignored those words… he went about his normal business without any care in the world,” Detective Inspector Danny Doherty said.

Last October, Ahmad dodged another attempt when he was tipped off by police about a planned attack on him in broad daylight in a park in Rushcutters Bay.
