Lambroglou couple arrested in connection to Sydney underworld murder

·

Husband and wife, Vincent and Maria Lambroglou, have been arrested by police investigating a high-profile Sydney underworld murder, The Daily Telegraph has reported.

Vincent Lambroglou, 41, is alleged to have organised the getaway cars used by the gunmen who murdered Rami Iskander at his Belmore home in May this year.

Iskander was the third casualty in a string of fatal shootings in Sydney’s gang war, with the other two victims being his step-uncle and notorious underworld figure Mahmoud Ahmad and rival Comanchero bikie Omar Zahed.

Detectives arrested Vincent on Saturday at an Oatley property, before visiting his Kyle Bay home where they found $500,000 in cash and arrested his wife Maria.

NSW Police Homicide Squad Commander Danny Doherty said whilst Vincent may not have pulled the trigger, he is still viewed as allegedly “enabling” the murder.

Vincent Lambroglou is arrested at Oatley on Saturday morning.

Vincent has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder, accessory before the fact to murder, participating in a criminal group, contributing to criminal group activity and knowingly dealing with proceeds of crime.

He has not made an application for bail and will face Burwood Court on Wednesday.

Maria has been charged with knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime and participating in a criminal group. She has been granted conditional bail and will face Sutherland Local Court on November 1.

Police do not allege that she was involved in the murder of Iskander.

“No one is untouchable, including the organised crime networks that we’re investigating at the moment… we’ll continue to work on them and to get justice for the families,” Detective Superintendent Doherty said.
