Police arrest convicted murderer Graham Potter after a decade on the run

Police have arrested convicted murderer Graham Potter after more than a decade on the run.

The 64-year-old had been wanted by police since he failed to appear at court to face conspiracy to murder changes in Melbourne, on February 1, 2010.

At the time he went into hiding, Potter was accused of being hired to kill a man at Melbourne underworld figure Mick Gatto’s son’s wedding in 2008.

As well as two counts of conspiracy to murder, he was also facing federal charges over a record $440 million ecstasy and cocaine haul in August 2008.

A former coal miner, Potter had previously served a 15-year sentence for killing and dismembering 19-year-old Kim Barry in NSW in 1981.

There had been several confirmed and unconfirmed sightings across eastern Australia over the years but in 2017 police said they had reached a dead end in their search for Potter.
