ALL good things must come to an end as fleet-footed escapee Nathan Furner found out on Tuesday.
Furner bolted from the District Court in Albury on February 12 after a judge dismissed a severity appeal against a four-month jail sentence imposed by magistrate Tony Murray on an assault charge.
He was too quick for a sheriff’s officer as he ran along the court foyer and has been free for the past month.
But police on Tuesday received information that Furner, 22, of Springdale Heights, was at a food outlet in Dean Street about 2.30pm.
He was seen walking along the footpath towards David Street and was arrested without incident on a warrant issued by Judge Paul Lakatos.
Furner has been charged with escaping from lawful custody over his rushed departure from the District Court rather than going to jail.
He appeared in Albury Local Court yesterday and solicitor Dione Garwell did not make an application for bail on his behalf.
On Monday, Furner must appear again in the District Court in Albury where a judge will confirm his jail term on the assault charge.
That will be followed by a trip to the Local Court for an indication on how he intends to plea on the escape charge.
Furner indicated from the dock yesterday that he wants things finalised.
