Armed police were out in central Whanganui yesterday to arrest a man for a parole breach.

Sergeant Shaun Jones said due to the 25-year-old's history there was a possibility he could be armed, so police armed themselves before carrying out the parole recall warrant.

He said it was the "appropriate" action to take.

The man was arrested without incident, Mr Jones said.
