Armed police have been spotted in the Judea area this evening.

A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says they saw the Armed Offenders Squad on Robins Road, just past the fork in the road.

A police spokesperson says armed police are in the area as part of a pre-planned search warrant.

"The AOS are assisting as a precaution."

Recently, firefighters were called to a fire at Faulkner Park on Robins Road.

The fire is currently being treated as suspicious, however, police have not confirmed whether or not there is a connection between the fire and today's search warrant.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
