Reports of a man possibly in possession of a firearm prompted a police callout in Dunedin this evening.
Several police cars were sent to the Blackhead area after an initial unconfirmed report that "a young man may have been in possession of a firearm".
Police cars were seen parked in several places near Green Island, including on Blackhead Rd, and at the intersection of that road and Green Island Bush Rd.
A spokesman said police were called to a property at 6.15pm, and a man was later helping police with their inquiries.
It is understood the man, who had left the property, was tracked down with the help of a police dog, about 7.15pm.
The spokesman said full details were not yet available and inquiries were continuing. No firearm had been found.
