Footage from Queensberry Street showed a man, dressed in a white forensic jumpsuit, being led from nearby St Mary's Church to a waiting vehicle.

A worker at nearby Trutrack Suspension told AAP the police action seemed to focus on the church.

"We can hear a few helicopters. We drove through before, it was all blocked off, the road. Police (are) everywhere," the worker said.

Police insisted there is no threat to the community.

"There is no current or impending threat to the community. It would not be appropriate to comment further at this time," a spokesman said earlier.
