Armed police have cordoned off a residential Pāpāmoa street this morning.
A police spokeswoman said police, supported by the Armed Offenders Squad, executed a search warrant at a Roxbury Pl address around 6.30am.
A Roxbury Pl resident, who did not want to be named, told the Bay of Plenty Times the cul-de-sac was cordoned off by police but residents were allowed through.
She said around half a dozen police cars were in the street as well as armed police and police dogs.
A police spokeswoman said inquiries were ongoing.
