A man considered dangerous by police remains on the run after an Armed Offenders Squad raid on a Northland property failed to find him.
Police shut down Port Marsden Highway, near One Tree Point, on Wednesday for about 90 minutes from 2.30pm.
Members of the specialist Armed Offenders Squad were used as a part of the search for Luke Raymond Edmonds, who is wanted on a prison parole recall warrant.
Diversions were put in place and armed officers were placed at the cordons but the search for the 40-year-old was unsuccessful.
