South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Ro­torua armed of­fend­ers squad used stun grenades to ex­e­cute a search war­rant at a Dal­meny St ad­dress on Fri­day morn­ing.

Toko­roa De­tec­tive Sergeant Kevan Verry said: ‘‘A risk as­sess­ment was con­ducted in line with po­lice pol­icy and it was deemed a mat­ter that needed the AOS as­sis­tance. Whilst se­cur­ing the ad­dress sev­eral stun grenades were de­ployed and this is stan­dard when clear­ing premises of any oc­cu­pants.’’

The Ro­torua armed of­fend­ers squad was as­sisted by the Taupo area in­ves­tiga­tive staff, whose area in­cludes Toko­roa and Taupo.

Mr Verry could not com­ment on how many oc­cu­pants were in the house or whether chil­dren were at the ad­dress when the search war­rant was ex­e­cuted.

He could not con­firm if an ar­rest was made or if the in­ci­dent was drug re­lated. Mr Verry said the mat­ter was still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
