Police Arrest Prominent Member of Alameddine Crime Family in Sydney

A prominent member of the Alameddine crime family in Sydney’s eastern suburbs has been arrested by the police after allegedly being on the run for a month. Ahmad Alameddine, 33 years old, was apprehended during a police operation at a residence in South Coogee on Tuesday.

Mr. Alameddine had reportedly been evading the police since jumping over the fence at his parents’ Greenacre home when elite officers attempted to arrest him. It is understood that he once again tried to escape from the police during his arrest on Tuesday.

A police spokesperson confirmed that one person was taken into custody after a search warrant was executed at a home on Bundock St at around 9 am. Police remained at the scene in the sought-after eastern suburb in the early afternoon.

This arrest marks the end of a month-long search by the police for Mr. Alameddine, who was wanted for multiple alleged offenses, including the disposal of two firearms in a neighboring property in June. The raid made headlines as the police intensified their efforts to dismantle organized crime networks in response to months of violence.

Mr. Alameddine’s partner, Jade Heffer, has already been charged with hindering the police and multiple weapons offenses. She is currently in custody awaiting trial. Police also allege that Ms. Heffer and Mr. Alameddine’s sister, Susan, assisted him in his escape from the police in August. Susan was also charged with hindering police but was granted bail. Both women have not entered pleas as their cases are before the court.

It is important to note that Mr. Alameddine has no alleged connection to the ongoing shooting investigations being conducted by the NSW Police.
