A large police presence is being reported in the Papamoa area this morning.

A SunLive reader has messaged us on Facebook to say police have cordoned off Waterford Park Drive and have been there since at least 7am.

“There are armed police and cars are being diverted from the area.

A police spokesperson says a pre-planned search warrant is being carried out.

“Members of the armed offenders’ squad as assisting as a precaution.”

 No other information is available at this stage.
