A paint ball rifle sparked an armed offenders squad (AOS) call out in Mt Maunganui this morning.
Police were called by the landlord of a property in Miro St.
The woman had gone to check on tenants about 10am when an argument ensued and what appeared to be a rifle was pointed at her.
Armed police cordoned the area and the Tauranga AOS was mobilised.
A paint ball rifle was found at the house.
A person who had left in a car before the AOS arrived was stopped at a cordon point. He was charged with firearms charges and will appear in Tauranga District Court on Wednesday.
