An armed teenager has been arrested after a manhunt through Central Otago.
Police arrested the 19-year-old man on Thursday morning after an incident in Lowburn, near Cromwell, on Wednesday.
Road-spike cordons were in place in the Lowburn and Mount Pisa areas on Wednesday.
A Dunedin-based armed offenders squad and dog units were also in the area after a "family harm incident" sparked the search for the teen.
The man was located "without incident" at a property in Cromwell shortly before 8am on Thursday, a police statement said.
