Graham Gene Potter

The Victorian Police Fugitive Task Force is appealing for assistance from optometrists to locate Graham Gene Potter.

Potter uses the aliases Jim Henderson, John Page and Peter Adams. He was born on 17 October 1957. Police say Potter will use any name and will pay cash.

Potter failed to appear on bail at Melbourne Magistrates Court on 1 February 2010 in relation to two charges of conspiracy to murder, and is currently on bail in relation to serious Commonwealth drug charges. Potter has prior convictions in New South Wales for murder, resisting arrest, assault of police (with a weapon) and escaping lawful custody.

When last sighted, Potter had dyed brown hair, a ginger beard and wore glasses, and was of medium to solid build and about 175 centimetres tall.

The photo showing Potter wearing shorts is the most recent.

There have been no confirmed sightings of Potter since 2010, when he bought glasses. His script was: R -1.75 -0.75 x5, L -1.75 -0.50 x174. His pupillary distance was 64. His previous frames were Eschenbach model 820519 size 54-18 colour 30.

There is a $100,000 reward for information leading to Potter’s arrest. Optometrists are asked to ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information.
