Man Arrested Over Drug Lord Murder with Kurrajong Links

Jan 4, 2024

Three men have been charged for their alleged involvement in the criminal enterprise responsible for the fatal shooting of Alen Moradian – including the man who allegedly pulled the trigger.

Moradian, 48 was shot dead on 27 June 2023, in an underground carpark in Spring Street Bondi Junction just days after registering a gemstone business, Brilliant Gems Australia Pty Ltd, located at his wife’s property in Kurrajong.

Late yesterday task force detectives – with assistance from Tactical Operations Unit – arrested a 24-year-old man at Fairfield Heights.

He was taken to Fairfield Police Station where he was charged with five offences including murder, drug and firearm related offences, and participating in a criminal group.

He was refused bail.

Police alleged in court that the 24-year-old man was the principal offender – or gunman – in the murder of drug lord Moradian, who had links to the Comanchero bike gang.

Earlier this week, Task Force Magnus detectives arrested two other  men, aged 27 and 28 at Macquarie Park. They seized 1.5kg of cocaine, 844 grams of Methylamphetamine, three DECCDs, and a pistol with 23 rounds of ammunition.

The men were taken to Gladesville Police Station, where the younger man was charged with eight firearm and drug related offences and participating in a criminal group.

The 28-year-old man was charged with drug-related offences and participating in a criminal group.

Both men were refused bail.
