Police hunt kidnappers of 39-year-old abducted from house on Sunday night in possible mix-up linking him with 400kg bikie cocaine theft

  •  Omar Elomar, 39, was kidnapped from a Condell Park home on Sunday night
  • Abducted man may be innocently linked to 400kg bikie cocaine theft
  • Police investigating connection to  SUV torched in car park 1.25am Monday
  • Underworld says Elomar unwittingly caught up in Comanchero bikie case 


Police are hunting the kidnappers of 39-year-old Omar Elomar who was abducted from his family home in Condell Park in western Sydney just before 7.30pm on Sunday.

Mr Elomar was taken from the house on Third Avenue and around six hours later a SUV was set alight at a unit block in Greenacre, which police believe may be linked to the abduction.

 Police are unaware of Mr Elomar’s whereabouts and the State Crime Command’s Robbery and Serious Crime Squad and Bankstown detectives are investigating the incidents.

Mr Elomar may have been kidnapped after he was innocently linked to the theft of more than 400 kilograms of cocaine allegedly related to exiled Comanchero bikie boss Mark Buddle, the Daily Telegraph reported.

There is no suggestion Elomar was involved in the theft or distribution of cocaine, or any other crime. 

Although Sunday night’s abduction is not believed to have anything to do with the underworld shootings of members of the Hamzy family, it comes three days after the last fatal shooting.

Ghassan Amoun, the brother of jailed gangster and Brothers 4 Life boss Bassam Hamzy, was shot dead in a brazen broad daylight execution at lunchtime last Thursday in South Wentworthville.

Amoun was the third Hamzy relative to be gunned down, following brother Mejid Hamzy fatally shot at Condell Park in October 2020, and cousin Bilal Hamze outside a Japanese restaurant in Sydney’s CBD last year.

The kidnapping follows several incidents in Condell Park, including the fatal 2020 shooting (above) of Mejid Hamzy, brother of jailed gangster and Brothers 4 Life gang leader, Bassam Hamzy

Mejid Hamzy's (above) assassination is part of an ongoing underworld war in Sydney's west which is not believed to be connected to Sunday's kidnapping of Omar Elomar

A family including a 12-year-old and three teenagers travelling in a car were miraculously unhurt when a man fired three bullets into the vehicle on Fourth Avenue last November.

The scene is one block from where Sunday night’s kidnapping took place.

Police later said the shooting was an escalation of an argument that stemmed from ‘social media and a chat group’ argument.

 Police have urged anyone who has information about the kidnapping or the SUV fire, or has dashcam footage, to contact Bankstown Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
