NSW: Man arrested as police hunt 20 fugitives on the run across Australia

POLICE have arrested a third target – the first for NSW – as part of a national campaign to track down wanted fugitives around Australia.

Operation Roam is a nationwide campaign promoting the exchange of information on 20 wanted people between policing jurisdictions across the country.

NSW Police teamed up with Crime Stoppers and took to social media to seek information from the community about the offenders, including five from NSW who are on the run and thought to be residing interstate.


One of those five men, a 36-year-old wanted on an arrest warrant, was nabbed by the Queensland Police Service at Bundaberg yesterday morning.

Detectives from the Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command will make their way to Bundaberg in the coming days to seek his extradition to NSW.

Police would like to thank the community for their assistance.

Operation Roam was first launched in 2011 and follows the international success of Operation INFRA Red, in which Crime Stoppers and police in Australia and around the world coordinated a global fugitive hunt.
