The Northern Territory Police Joint Organized Crime Task Force reportedly found Mark Horne, 32, on the boat as it attempted to sail from Cullen Bay Marina in Darwin late Wednesday afternoon.

Horne, from NSW, was on bail when he allegedly cut off his electronic surveillance bracelet and fled Sydney on a private jet in October.

The Bikie employee was awaiting trial for the alleged non-fatal shooting of truck driver Leith Carstairs in September 2020 and the theft of $550,000 in Mt. Lambie in the Blue Mountains.

His bail conditions included a requirement to report to police daily, not associate with rebel bikes, observe a 9 p.m. curfew, post $50,000 bail and wear an ankle monitor.

Horne was also forced to surrender his passport as police believed he was planning to flee the country.

He was taken into custody by NT Police and will face an extradition hearing in Darwin on Monday.

Officers also arrested two other men, aged 52 and 43, on the boat.

NT Police Commander Matt Hollamby said the arrests were a sign of “excellent work” by the joint task force.

AFP Commander Central Command Erica Merrin commended the quick response and diligent work of investigators from the Northern Territory’s Joint Organized Crime Taskforce.

“This incident shows that organized crime knows no borders and underscores the importance of genuine cooperation between authorities to ensure the safety of our Australian community,” Ms Merrin said.
