Armed police operation underway

Armed police swooped in on a Welcome Bay neighbourhood early this morning.

About three police cars, a police van and at least six police officers were seen on Meander Dr and nearby streets about 7.30am.

A Bay of Plenty Times reader said she saw several police cars on Victory St, Osprey Dr and Meander Dr.

A police spokesperson confirmed there was an operation underway and that CIB and AOS teams were involved, but would not release any more details at this stage.
