Police search for armed man in Nerang called off

A LARGE-SCALE police search has been called off after scores of officers descended on bushland and streets in Nerang this afternoon to search for a man who was possibly armed.

The Bulletin reports, the police helicopter assisted in the search, which lasted about 30 minutes before it was called off about 1pm.

Police were trying to verify reports the man was armed after leaving a Yarrayne Rd home, where it is believed a dispute took place.


The search was called off when it became unclear whether the man had committed an offence, although he is wanted for questioning over an incident last night.
