Police are making follow-up enquiries after being called to an address in Greytown. Reports indicated that a man had been door-knocking on Udy St, saying he was from a food delivery service at about 7.30pm Friday. At 12.43pm on Saturday, police were called after three cyclists had told a friend they needed help in Tinui but received no further information; police found they had a flat tyre. The cyclists got back on their way by 1.30pm. Reports of a single-vehicle crash on Fitzherbert St in Featherston prompted a police and Fire and Emergency callout on Saturday at about 3.55pm. The vehicle had crashed into a ditch, and one person was taken to hospital to be assessed for a possible medical event. The road was not blocked. A callout at 12.13am yesterday involving a firearm on Cambridge St resulted in a police response. However, the witnesses did not wish to make a complaint. Reports suggested a person was presenting a firearm at two people. Police spoke with the occupant.
