A caller told police at 4:54 p.m. Tuesday that a man was standing on Concord Street holding a rifle and a knife.
When police arrived, however, they discovered that the man was instead holding a metal detector and a hand shovel.
The man told police he was "looking for buried treasure."
Gloucester police made a number of warrant arrests Tuesday and Wednesday.
