The FBI has apprehended Comanchero boss Mark Buddle as he headed back to his hideout on the Cyprus border, making him Australia’s most wanted man.
Mark Buddle who took over the leadership of the Comancheros after former boss was jailed, has reportedly been living in Cyprus since mid-2021.
However, his stay has not been low-profile and has rarely been out of the local headlines, making the front-page of Cyprus newspaper Kibris Gercek last year.
How Mark Buddle, Australia’s Comanchero boss was captured by the FBI in Cyprus
The Sydney-born crime boss who grew up in a Maroubra housing commission estate before joining the Comanchero, recently left his latest safe haven in Cyprus to meet with a fellow international member of the gang in Germany.
He then travelled back via Turkey, an area where many Australian fugitives hide out, and FBI agents swooped as he tried to re-enter Cyprus, underworld sources said.
‘Mark Buddle’s been captured up. The boys knew about it hours ago,’ one Sydney source told Daily Mail Australia.
