A man who was at the centre of an Armed Offenders Squad callout in Richmond, near Nelson, has been found.
Police said he was arrested without incident at a house in Richmond this afternoon.
They earlier cordoned off an area in the suburb of Hope - around Bateup, Paton, Hart and Collins Roads - as they searched for him.
The police said he was likely to face firearms-related charges.
While they were searching for the man, they said they also arrested a 44-year-old man who was wanted on outstanding warrants.
During the search, the police said they were looking for a man in relation to threatening behaviour at a local business - understood to be Sun City Motors.
They asked the public to avoid the cordoned-off area while they looked for the man in nearby properties.
Residents were asked to stay indoors.
