He will be questioned on suspicion of firearms offences at Launceston police station.

"We would particularly like to praise the local community in Widegates for its patience and calm in the face of a large police presence throughout the day.

"We are thankful that this matter has now been brought to a safe conclusion.”

Police are not looking for anyone else.

A large scale search operation was launched for Elvis impersonator Derrel Weaver on Thursday evening.
