The armed police incident at the Tauranga Bridge Marina has been "resolved without injury".
Armed police and police negotiators were at Tauranga Bridge Marina yesterday afternoon trying to contact a person who had fled police on to a boat in the marina.
She said that about 3.40pm police had tried to stop a vehicle on Te Awanui Drive.
"The driver made threats to police and fled on foot on to a boat in the harbour which is where they are now.
"We've deployed AOS [Armed Offenders Squad] as a precaution and the police negotiations team are there as well.
"We are trying to get in touch with the person."
She confirmed yesterday the person was still on a boat and police were still at the marina by 7.30pm.
This morning, she confirmed the situation had been resolved without any injuries but could not give more detail at this stage.
A reporter at the scene heard police telling a person on a boat to come out with their hands up. There were about seven police at the Marina as well as a police dog.
St John was also on the scene.
A Bay of Plenty Regional Council spokesman confirmed the Tauranga Harbourmaster also assisted police.
Police also turned people away from the waterfront Salinity Restaurant.
A restaurant worker said they were too busy to comment.
More to come.
