NSW police have arrested father-son fugitive duo Gino and Mark Stocco.

The pair has been caught around 90km east of Dubbo on Wednesday morning. The pair, with their arms up, surrendered to heavily armed officers on a property at Dunedoo. According to reports, the Tactical Operations Unit performed the operation while a Bearcat armoured vehicle was present.

The father-son fugitives have been on the run for eight years. Police in Victoria, Queensland and NSW were looking for the fugitives after the 58-year-old father and his 35-year-old son were involved in a number of offences including theft, property damage and arson.

According to 9News, the father-son pair is going to face further charges as they are involved in the alleged attempted murder of officers. They fired at police officers near Wagga Wagga on Oct. 16, prompting an escalated manhunt. The duo has apparently travelled across NSW and Victoria to escape arrest after the alleged attempted murder.

The duo was last seen on Saturday as CCTV caught the father-son gang stealing petrol worth around $200 from a South Gundegai service station at 9 p.m. in South Gundagai. According to The Guardian, the pair was also spotted in Tarcutta on Monday. They are also believed to have been spotted at a rest stop at West Wyalong.
