High-Profile Member of Alameddine Crime Family Arrested in Sydney

A prominent member of the Alameddine crime family has been apprehended in Sydney’s eastern suburbs after allegedly evading authorities for over a month. Detectives from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command executed a search warrant at a residence on Bundock Street in South Coogee at 9am on Tuesday.

During the search, Ahmad Alameddine, who was wanted by the police, arrived at the unit but attempted to flee on foot around 2.30pm. After a brief pursuit, the 33-year-old was arrested in the vicinity and taken to Maroubra Police Station to assist with the ongoing investigation.

Alameddine had previously fled from a residence in Greenacre on August 3 when the police arrived to speak with him regarding a firearm investigation. At the time, two women, aged 28 and 35, who were present at the house with Alameddine, were taken into custody at a service station on Waterloo Road and transported to Bankstown Police Station.

The 28-year-old woman was charged with six offenses, including possessing a pistol in violation of a firearms prohibition order, acquiring a firearm without a license or permit, failure to secure a firearm safely, obstructing the apprehension of a person involved in a serious offense, and obstructing or resisting a police officer in the line of duty. The 35-year-old woman was charged with four counts of obstructing the apprehension of a person involved in a serious offense.

This arrest comes as a significant development in the ongoing investigation into the activities of the Alameddine crime family. Further details regarding the charges and the subsequent legal proceedings will be provided as the investigation progresses.
