A man is set to appear in court after armed police swooped on a house in Hartlepool.
Police went to a house in St Oswald's Street where it had been reported that a knife was seen during the incident.
St Oswald's Street was cordoned off at both ends while armed officers surrounded one of the properties, on Thursday.
Three people, two men and a woman, were arrested following the incident.
Cleveland Police has confirmed that two people have been released without charge, while a man aged 42 has been charged with possession of a Class B drug.
He will appear at Hartlepool Magistrates' Court next month.
