Armed police descended on the Central Auckland suburb of Parnell leading to the arrest of three people today.

A sighting from the police Eagle helicopter prompted the raid, a police spokesperson said, after it sighted a vehicle of interest on Cracroft St.

“A person connected to the vehicle was wanted by police for their involvement in a firearms incident from two days ago,” the spokesperson said.

“Armed police converged on the address and took three people into custody without incident, all had warrants for their arrest.”
Photos from the event show at least four officers with bulletproof vests on with guns strapped to their sides.
