Man charged over alleged Greenacre murder

A MAN allegedly involved in the planning of Mahmoud ‘Brownie’ Ahmad’s murder in Greenacre in April has been charged.

Police arrested the man in Campsie earlier this year over several alleged drug and criminal group offences and have now charged him with being an accessory before the fact to murder, and accessory after the fact to murder.
When police arrived at the Greenacre property about 9.30pm on Wednesday, April 27, they found Mr Ahmad, 39, suffering gunshot wounds and despite their efforts and those of paramedics he died at the scene.
As part of the investigation by Task Force Erebus, detectives arrested a 49-year-old man during a police operation at Campsie on Monday, May 2.
Later that day, police executed a search warrant at a home at Wetherill Park, where they allegedly seized more than 25kg of methylamphetamine (ice), with an estimated potential street value of more than $22 million, $200,000 cash and cloned number plates.
The man was charged with several drug and criminal group offences and remains before the courts.
Following further extensive inquiries, investigators laid two additional charges on the man via a legal representative on Friday, June 24.
He remains in custody until his next court appearance.
Investigations under Task Force Erebus continue.
Anyone with information that may assist Task Force Erebus investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
