Mildura Police are being applauded for their quick actions, after an incident earlier this week.
A 35 year old man has been arrested, after reportedly producing a weapon in front of Mildura Police.
The local man was stopped by Mildura patrols, who believed he was wanted on a warrant.
He was carrying a backpack, and reportedly produced a sawn-off shotgun.
Officers drew their weapons, with the man retreating into Brown Street.
The man surrendered and was arrested following a two hour negotiation.
Nobody was injured during the incident.
