Armed police complete Taupo house search

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 19/10/2016

Police have completed a search of a house near Acacia Bay at Lake Taupo after an incident that led to the Armed Offenders Squad being called out.

Two men from the house were arrested at 5pm on Wednesday, but cordons were kept in place because police believed at least another person was still inside.

They say the search confirmed that the two people taken into custody were the only ones at the property.

The incident began as police were preparing to execute an arrest warrant.

Before they could enter the house, a man outside was seen to point what appeared to be a firearm at the police Eagle helicopter and the AOS was called out.
