Fugitive father and son arrested in NSW northwest

Police have arrested Gino and Mark Stocco at a property  in the northwest NSW town of Dunedoo Wednesday morning, NSW police said.

The men were arrested at a property on Tonniges Road at Elong Elong shortly before midday, following a covert operation involving officers from Western Region, New England Local Area Command, the Tactical Operations Unit, Aviation Support Branch, and State Crime Command’s Robbery and Serious Crime Squad.

No shots were fired and no one was injured during the arrest.

Strike Force Kalkadoon was formed by NSW Police Force’s Southern Region to investigate the pair’s whereabouts earlier this month.

The men will be taken to Dubbo Police Station to be charged.

Police would like to thank their interstate counterparts at Victorian Police, as well as the media and the public for their assistance during the search.
