HIS name is Elvis.
And police claim he used a cat to
trigger a laser alarm system during a failed break-in of
a secure building where he was allegedly trying to steal
guns for former bikie boss Sam Ibrahim.
The Sunday Telegraph can reveal that
police will allege Elvis Mileski was the gopher in a
criminal organisation that attempted to supply Rose
Tattoo drummer Paul DeMarco with enough stolen firearms
for him to sell for up to $270,000.
Police will allege there were delays
with the supply and DeMarco was left to explain to a
potential buyer there had been “difficulty with
security” and the person performing the break-in “had to
place a cat inside the location” so investigators would
think it was a false alarm.
The other problem was the alleged
potential buyer negotiating a deal with DeMarco inside
his Windsor home was an undercover police operative who
was wired for sound.
Police will allege DeMarco agreed to
sell the operative 30 “brand new Beretta branded” guns
in three instalments for up to $9000 each.
He was one of four people arrested on
Tuesday and charged with conspiring to sell the weapons.
DeMarco was also charged with the sale of 13 firearms to

Mileski is already in prison for
driving offences and is yet to be charged because police
are still processing evidence against him, according to
a police source.

Police will allege Ibrahim and DeMarco
communicated in coded text messages, where they said
“didn’t u wanna train mate?”, which investigators claim
was a question about the availability of guns for sale.
The arrests came after a five month
investigation, which seized a cache of weapons including
a military-issue M1 assault rifle.
DeMarko, 55, faces 27 charges and will
appear in Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday. Ibrahim,
45, faces five charges and will face court the same day.
Neither applied for bail on Thursday. Dior also didn’t
apply for bail.
With the case against Ibrahim, Dior
and Mileski relying mostly on coded conversations,
tapped phone calls and so far lacking surveillance
evidence, the challenge for police will be proving in
court the pair were actually talking about guns.
When contacted by The Sunday
Telegraph, Ibrahim and Dior’s lawyer Brett Galloway said
there was no “real evidence” linking the pair to the
“At this stage the police case reads
like a cheap paperback but I anticipate that when the

DeMarco’s lawyer Michael Kroke said it
was undecided whether the drummer would apply for bail.
Police will allege DeMarco supplied 13
guns to the operative between October and March.
On January 4, DeMarco told the
operative there would be “a future bulk purchase of
firearms”, which included 30 guns, to be sold in batches
of 10 for $8500 to $9000 each, police will allege.

The Sunday Telegraph understands the
security at the site where the firearms was located
included lasers and alarms which were too sophisticated
for Mileski to breach.
On February 6, DeMarco told the
operative about the difficulties and explained about the
use of the cat.
Police claim that six days later,
Mileski told Dior in a coded message to ask Ibrahim for
$23,000 for six items.
That day, DeMarco told the operative
two “Glocks”, two Berettas and two small firearms would
be available soon, police will allege.

But police will allege the deal was
allegedly delayed and on February 14 DeMarco sent the
operative a disguised text: “got a sore toe and I can’t
find Joe now I must go”.
The operative visited DeMarco’s house
that afternoon and the drummer told him 10 “nine
millimetre Beretta pistols brand new in boxes” were soon
“arriving from Perth”, police will allege.
Ibrahim later texted DeMarco: “they
will be training tomorrow afternoon - 100%”, police will
Police will claim the relationship
between Mileski and Ibrahim soured after Mileski failed
to get the guns in Melbourne.
By February 21, police will allege the
Melbourne sale was doomed and DeMarco told the operative
only five Beretta guns were for sale.
On February 25, police will allege
that Dior returned $23,000 to Ibrahim after he said he
did not “want to hear excuses”.
Police will allege DeMarco told the
operative the guns had been sold and he would send him a
text saying “hey what’s up” when more were ready for
