Bikies arrested in Sydney, police intervene after shooting of Mahmoud Ahmad

A high-ranking bicycle boss has been charged when police cracked down on organized crime groups in Sydney, arresting two people en route to the funeral of crime figure Mahmoud “Brownie” Ahmad.

The eruption comes after Ahmad, 39, was gunned down Wednesday night at Narelle Crescent in Greenacre.

State Crimes Commander Detective Chief Superintendent Darren Bennett confirmed that the arrests were made on Saturday as people headed for Ahmad’s funeral.

“We have arrested over 250 people in Strike Force Hawk – [with] more arrests last night, [including] people arrested on the way to the funeral are being readied for a serious drug stash after a police chase,” he said.

Chief Inspector Bennett said police want anyone with information about the Narelle Crescent shooting to come forward.

“The police are doubling their efforts on this type of crime. We want to avoid retaliation and we want to prevent further violence,” he said.

“We take these types of targeted killings very seriously.”

Police said more than 800 charges have been filed against about 250 people since October last year.

During that time, he said, police also seized nearly 70 firearms and conducted more than 360 searches of gang members and their associates.
