A Slip 'N Slide has helped police apprehend a bumbling crook in Adamstown.

It's alleged officers pulled over a Holden Commodore on Glebe Rd at around midday yesterday, before identifying one of occupants as a Narrabri man wanted on a number of outstanding warrants.

Police say the man's then fled the scene - but he didn't get far before taking a tumble on a Slip N' Slide set up nearby.

Officers arrested the supposed crook shortly after.

A 28-year-old has been charged with half a dozen offences including resisting arrest - and has been refused bail ahead of facing Newcastle Court today.
