Metropolitan Police officers raided a home in Calne on Sunday in search of a wanted man.
Station Road was closed in both directions from around 3pm until 6pm, when around a dozen armed police officers swarmed the street as part of the major police operation.
The National Police Air Support helicopter was overhead while the incident was ongoing, and a Ford Focus, parked on Station Road, was loaded onto a flat-bed lorry, seized by police.
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told Wiltshire 999s: “Officers from the Metropolitan Police, alongside armed officers from Wiltshire Police, searched an address in Station Road Wiltshire on Sunday, 28 October as part of an ongoing investigation to locate a wanted man.
“No arrests were made.”
The Met said they were unable to comment further for operational reasons.
