A 36-year-old man from Rouse Hill and a 27-year-old man from Smithfield are currently in custody. Echo Task Force detectives arrested the men with the assistance of police anti-gangs squads in New South Wales.

The arrests follow an alleged robbery and fight at a Camp Street hotel in the early hours of Saturday, June 7.

Following the incident, warrants were executed on the Finks Ballarat clubhouse in June and a number of men, believed to be affiliated with the Finks were arrested and charged with aggravated burglary, robbery, affray and assault related offences.

Echo Task Force detectives will make an application to Parramatta Court for the men’s extradition to Victoria.
