A man who allegedly hasn't been appearing for court dates since early 2012 is now behind bars.

  • Failure to Appear in Drug Court for status hearing for Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling-No Bond
  • Failure to Appear in Drug Court for status hearing for Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling-No Bond
  • Failure to Appear in Drug Court for status hearing for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Resisting Arrest by Flight, Carrying a Firearm in a Firearm Free Zone-No Bond

Avie was also wanted on a bench warrant for Failure to Appear on a No Seat Belt Charge with a $50.00 contempt.

Picard says Avie's criminal record dates back to late 2009.
