Armed police swooped on Dallington in Christchurch this morning looking for Jackson Manson, wanted for arrest in connection with serious offending involving the use of firearms.

The Armed Offenders Squad was called to a Gayhurst Rd address this morning, after an off-duty police officer had earlier reported a sighting of Manson.

Manson had left the address before police arrived.

The operation is being wound up and cordons removed about now.

Manson is a Maori, 22, of thin build, with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information of his whereabouts should call Detective Tim Cummins on 03 373 9160, or Christchurch police on 03 363 7400, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
