Armed police have surrounded a house in the West Auckland suburb of Glendene and are calling for the occupants to “come out”.
Police say they have since cleared the house on Glendene Ave following a report of a robbery about 8:10pm.
They initially believed the occupants had a firearm, and the street was cordoned off.
A witness on the scene said the house was surrounded by about 15 armed officers who had set up a perimeter around the property.
The witness said he saw three “fully armed” officers entering the weatherboard property along with a dog handler after calling for the occupants to leave with their hands up.
No one was located at the address and a firearm was not verified by Police.
Police were speaking with the victim and continued to make enquiries to locate the others involved.
The cordons have now been stood down and there were no injuries.
Police were shining torches on the outside of the house.
One of the people involved reported seeing a firearm at the address, but that has not been verified at this stage.
No one is injured and no sounds have been reported.
More to come.
