Three people were arrested following a domestic disturbance involving a firearm in Dunedin on Wednesday night, police say.
Officers were called to a Brockville address following reports of a disturbance, during which a window was broken and people were threatening the occupants of a house, Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said.
It was also alleged a firearm had been pointed at the occupants during the incident, he said.
As a result, police arrested two men, aged 30 and 26, and a 21-year-old woman, for a variety of offences including threatening language, wilful damage and bail breaches, he said.
Charges had not yet been laid in relation to a firearm, but one had been recovered and inquiries were continuing, he said.
In a separate incident, a .308 rifle was also seized from a Hillary St home, in Pine Hill, after police investigating an unrelated matter found it unsecured at the address on Wednesday morning, he said.
