A former bodyguard of Kings Cross identity John Ibrahim, who this week appeared on a list of Australia's most-wanted, has handed himself in to NSW police.
Neil Cummins, 42, walked in to Burwood Police Station on Tuesday after Operation Roam was launched the previous day to track down 20 alleged criminals on the run across Australia.
Cummins, the ex-husband of former Bardot singer Tiffani Wood, was charged over his alleged involvement in an extortion case at Coffs Harbour on the NSW north coast in 2014.
He appeared at Burwood Local Court on Tuesday and was granted bail ahead of his next court date on August 29 at Coffs Harbour.
Crime Stoppers NSW boss Peter Price blamed "incorrect" contact details provided to police for the inability of officers to locate him.
Also on Tuesday, Jayson Aworth, 41, attended Dareton Police Station after he was named on the most-wanted list.
He was charged in relation to alleged aggravated indecent assault offences that occurred in the far southwest of the state in January.
Aworth was refused bail and scheduled to appear at Broken Hill Local Court on Tuesday.
Operation Roam is a national initiative seeking public help to track down 20 people sought by police across Australia.
So far eight people have been arrested as part of the operation - including two before it officially kicked off - while 12 others remain outstanding.
Also on Operation Roam's radar is accused double-murderer John Victor Bobak, 67, who has been on the run for 25 years.
Bobak is wanted for his alleged involvement in the 1991 execution-style killings of bookmaker Peter George Wade and Maureen Ambrose at a Surfers Paradise unit.
Jonathan Dick, from Victoria, is wanted over the murder of his brother, David Dick, at a Melbourne shopping centre in February.
