A neighbour told the Herald Sun another man had been living at the property over the past few months and Thompson was seen only occasionally.

He said he had seen numerous visitors coming and going during the final two weeks of last year.

Another neighbour said all police "took out was a few evidence bags. They didn't look big".

Thompson captained Essendon to a premiership as a player and won two as coach of Geelong.

Police can be heard shouting, "Don't move!" as they enter the building. Source: 7 News
