Police have arrested a person following an alleged bomb threat which was aimed and targeted at the Cook Strait ferries, Interislander and Bluebridge.
A 33-year-old man was arrested in relation to threats aimed at the ferries in Picton today.
Charges are being considered but the man is expected to appear in Blenheim District Court tomorrow.
Marlborough Area Commander Inspector Simon Feltham says the incident had caused distress to many passengers embarking on the ride.
“We appreciate today's incident caused considerable disruption and distress for many,” he said.
“I would like to acknowledge our Specialist Search Group staff who flew from Wellington to complete an extensive search of both the terminal buildings and ferries, and the investigation team who identified and located the alleged offender.”
