A MOREE man who jumped over a court dock and fled a court room on the weekend remains on the run.
Michael Pitt, 33, was charged with breaching NSW Supreme Court bail after his arrest on Friday in Moree.
He fronted Moree Local Court on Saturday morning where he was refused bail.
Pitt is then accused of jumping over the dock in the court room and running from Corrective Services officers who gave chase; one female officer sustained minor injuries.
Outside the court, Pitt is then believed to have caught a taxi before fleeing when the cab pulled up in the vicinity of Wilga Pl in Moree.
Barwon Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Gavin Rattenbury, said Moree police immediately initiated a search to track down Pitt, but he remains at large.
“Since Pitt’s escape investigators have been engaged in both covert and overt strategies to track him down,” Detective Inspector Rattenbury said yesterday.
“Officers have received numerous calls from members of the public who are genuinely assisting police in their efforts to arrest him.”
Moree police say they’re pulling out all stops to arrest Pitt and are appealing for further help from the public.
Detective Inspector Rattenbury said information provided by the public that leads to an arrest could make members of the public eligible for cash rewards up to $1000.
Anyone with information on Pitt’s whereabouts is urged to contact Moree police on 6757 0799 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
