Police have arrested and charged a wanted man after he was found in the Hunter region on Monday - hiding from officers in a cupboard.
The NSW Police Northern Region Domestic Violence High Risk Offender Team and the State Crime Command's Extended Supervision Order Investigation Team began their search for 29-year-old Tenambit man Brian Costigan on December 8.
He was wanted due to an alleged breach of bail.
Police said their extensive investigations led officers to a unit at Dixon Street, Cessnock, about 2.30pm on Monday, where they found Mr Costigan hiding inside a bedroom cupboard.
He was arrested and taken to Cessnock Police Station where he was charged with four counts of failing to comply with an extended/interim supervision order, destroying or damaging property valued less than $2000, contravening an apprehended domestic violence order and breach of bail.
Mr Costigan's bail was revoked in Cessnock Local Court on Tuesday. He will face court again on Wednesday.
