"A male has been taken into custody without incident at Whenuapai Air Force Base, and is speaking with Police," the police said, as quoted by the TVNZ broadcaster.
The police have described the incident as a "bomb scare".
A source has told the NZ Herald outlet that "there was a police helicopter, and multiple emergency vehicles."
