Northern Territory police arrested the 32-year-old as the vessel attempted to sail out of Cullen Bay Marina on Wednesday afternoon.

Two men aged 52 and 43 were also arrested.

The fugitive, reportedly Mark Horne, was found when the yacht was searched.

It ended a nationwide manhunt that began last October after he allegedly skipped bail.

Horne was set to face trial in NSW for alleged involvement in the shooting of a lorry driver and theft of $550,000 in the Blue Mountains in September 2020.

Australian Federal Police Commander Erica Merrin said the Joint Organized Crime Task Force had responded quickly and diligently.

“This incident shows how organized crime knows no borders and highlights the importance of real inter-agency cooperation to keep our Australian community safe,” he said.
