A COCAINE-fuelled Tinder threesome turned to murder when a “date” tipped off an armed robber gang about a drug and cash stash.

Luke Lembryk, 29, was stabbed to death when two men broke into his mum’s home in western Sydney in December 2019.

Police allege his flashy showing of cash and drugs led to his murder after one of his dates tipped off an armed robbery gang that he was an “easy target” for a lucrative score.

Plumber Luke reportedly matched with Lisa Price on the dating app in August 2019, according to court documents.

Price and her friend attended Luke’s home where all three did three lines of cocaine from a freezer bag, according to the court documents.

Luke reportedly waved around a stack of $50 notes containing up to $15,000 while the trio were chatting, according to the Sydney Sunday Telegraph.

There was also a blazer hanging from the door that had large sums of cash spilling from the pocket, it’s reported.

After leaving his home, Price allegedly told her friend that they should “do this guy over,” the court documents said.

There was reportedly a plan to convince her friend to make contact again with Luke – or even be used as bait – because of their previous encounter, the court heard.

Price allegedly told the other woman to call Luke and ask for a bag of cocaine and to organise to buy a bag from him.

She tipped off another friend – a member of a group of so-called break and enter specialists from western Sydney – about them potentially robbing the plumber of up to $50,000 cash, it’s alleged.

Police allege three people raided the house, stabbing the 29-year-old to death, local media reports.

Seven people, including Price, have been charged with offences ranging from murder to lying to police.

Police reportedly intercepted a phone call on the night of the murder between Price and one of the alleged killers, Joseph Nehme.

She appeared to be directing him to Luke’s home, according to the court documents.

The robbers allegedly slashed a flyscreen which woke Luke’s mother Robyn.

They allegedly punched her and escaped empty-handed after failing to find the plumber’s stash of cash.

Robyn turned on the lights and saw that her son had been stabbed four times.

“I’m going to die mum, I’m going to die,” the wounded Luke reportedly said.

Luke’s cause of death was a stab wound to the left side of his heart.

Police found a kitchen knife that was covered in his blood but it was missing its handle.

Police arrested and charged three men over the killing.

Nehme, 27, Bilal Rahim, 29 and Viliami Taufahema, 35, were all charged with murder and other offences including assault with an intent to rob with an offensive weapon.

Price was charged with being an accessory before the fact to murder and being an accessory before the fact to assault with intent to rob.

The trio, and Price, have been refused bail and are due to appear in court next month.
