A North Canterbury man who sparked an armed police callout this week has been sentenced. 

Marcus Dominique Pohio, 44, was arrested yesterday morning after members of the armed offenders squad (AOS) were called to his Church Bush Rd, Tuahiwi, property.

Pohio was sentenced to supervision by Judge David Saunders in the Christchurch District Court this morning on charges of wilful trespass and disorderly behaviour likely to incite violence.

The charges came after an incident at a Kaiapoi business on Sunday night.

Armed police were sent to Pohio's house after he began causing trouble at the Pineacres Restaurant and Bar, but he could not be found.

Two dog handlers, an AOS team and two uniformed patrol teams returned to Pohio's property yesterday morning, where he was arrested without further incident.
