5:20 pm on 2 February 2010

Two men have been arrested following an armed police callout to the Kapiti township of Waikanae.

Police say members of the Armed Offenders Squad were sent to the area after someone first raised the alarm at 1.30pm on Tuesday.

It is alleged two men known to police were seen carrying firearms into a house in Walton Avenue.

Police blocked off the street and alerted nearby schools, but the cordons have been lifted.
