Two women were arrested and a Honda Civic will be searched as authorities look into a complaint of alleged threats - and a reference to a shotgun - that culminated with a high-risk take-down Tuesday in Hebbville.

The sequence of events started around 2:20 p.m. when police were summoned Marie Avenue on the west side of Bridgewater to a report of a fight, mixed in with a threat over driving issues and mention of a firearm.

Police learned of two suspects in a vehicle driving west on Pine Street toward Hebbville. Authorities caught up to the vehicle and the incident concluded on the William Hebb Road, just a few metres outside the town limits. RCMP officers also assisted with the traffic stop and arrests.

Danny MacPhee, Bridgewater's deputy police chief, said a search warrant would be sought for the blue Honda Civic and the firearm is "one of the items we'd be looking for," he told LighthouseNOW at the scene.

The investigation is in its early stages and MacPhee said anyone with any information concerning the matter is asked to get in touch with police.
