Comancheros bikie gang leader is extradited to Sydney after allegedly confronting a man in the toilets of the Crown Casino
A Gucci-loving bikie boss has been extradited to Sydney after spending several weeks on the run.
Comancheros bikie boss turned fugitive Tarek Zahed, 40, was escorted by Criminal Groups Squad detectives officers in handcuffs through Sydney Airport on Monday afternoon after touching down from a Melbourne flight.
NSW Police Criminal Groups Squad recently launched inquiries to locate the 40-year-old, who was wanted on an outstanding revocation of parole warrant.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after Zahed was charged with affray when he allegedly punched another diner in a restaurant toilet at Sydney’s new Crown casino in January.
The State Parole Authority later issued a warrant for his arrest after it was revealed he was on a court-appointed parole order.
Heavily armed officers from Victoria Police’s Echo taskforce and Australian Federal Police’s National Anti-Gangs Squad arrested at a Point Cook home in Melbourne’s west last Friday after returning from a mosque.
He was taken to Melbourne West Police Station and appeared in Melbourne Magistrate Court on Monday where NSW Police applied for his extradition to Sydney, which was granted.
More to come.
