Sleepy end to search for wanted man

An 18 year old Toormina man wanted on an outstanding warrant has been refused bail to Coffs Harbour local court, after evading officers twice over the past week and a half.

The Coffs Clarence Local Area Command report the man evaded police in Nambucca Heads on January 27th, then again on February 2nd.

At 7.24 on Saturday morning, police were patrolling Wentworth Avenue, Coffs Harbour, when they saw a man asleep in the gutter.

They stopped to check on his welfare and quickly discovered that he was the wanted man. He was woken, arrested and handcuffed.

He was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station where he has been charged with the outstanding arrest warrant.
