A man is in custody following a two-hour police operation in a normally quiet suburban street at Banora Point yesterday afternoon.

Police were called to Bione Avenue at about 3.15pm Thursday, intending to arrest a man on an outstanding warrant.

But they allege the 33-year-old man refused to leave the home as requested

A perimeter was established and the street was closed as a precaution together with several streets surrounding it.

Negotiators spoke with the man for about two hours before he surrendered into police custody without incident.

He was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station.

The man is being charged with an outstanding warrant for revocation of parole. He was refused bail to appear in Tweed Heads Local Court today, Friday 11 October.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
