A MAN who evaded police for over a month, and was eventually arrested after a four-hour standoff with police in East Boambee, was sentenced to jail in Coffs Harbour Local Court on Tuesday.

Brodie Dalzell had been wanted on a warrant for several firearms and violence offences and was the subject of three police appeals for information.

On August 21, he was eventually apprehended after a long stand off with police at a Borrowdale Crescent residence.

The street was in lockdown as police negotiators, police dogs and the Tactical Operations Regional Support Unit were all called in to help apprehend the 25-year-old.
