There were some tense moments in a couple of Windsor neighbourhoods on Wednesday afternoon, with one incident carrying on for more than seven-hours.

Police were called to the scene at Arthur Road south of Tecumseh Road just before 3 p.m on Wednesday for what was reported as an, "active weapons investigation."

The Emergency Services Unit was on scene using a megaphone to call occupants out of the home — two people came out voluntarily, one was brought out by police and at last check, at least one female remained in the home, demanding fentanyl before she would surrender.

Major Crimes will not confirm they were taken into custody because the investigation is in its early stages, but say the scene was cleared as of 10 p.m.

This woman has lived on the street for 24 years and says the only problems on the street are caused by people coming and going from that house.

"There's always drugs, there's always people buying drugs, there's yelling, there's yelling, there's people getting kicked out and throwing things," she says. "This is always during the day but the dealing of drugs, that's at night. They're always coming at nighttime 9:00 or 10:00 at night, that's when they go buy drugs."

Simultaneously there was a similar situation happening at Mercer and Elliot.

This neighbour says this isn't the first time police have been to the house.

"This is the fourth time in the past year and there were here about two months ago for a drug bust, a raid and then back in October they were here and one time before that and it's always the same house," he says.

The neighbour also says he has lived in the area for the last seven years and says it's always the same house causing problems on the street.

"It's always seems to be the same people and it's just ridiculous, there's kids and staff that live in the area and they can't enjoy themselves in peace because they got this kind of crap going on."

Windsor police tell AM800 news the two are related but won't say how.

Major Crimes says no one was injured in either incident and more information will be released in the coming days.
