Three Cranbourne West men faced a number of drugs and weapons charges following the execution of a drug warrant in Middleham Close on Wednesday 15 March.
Police from the Divisional Response Unit conducted a raid on the property at 5.45am in a targeted investigation, following numerous complaints from the local community.
Inside the house police allegedly found drugs and weapons in the possession of three men.
A 25-year-old man from Cranbourne West was charged following the raid with trafficking methamphetamine, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, possessing a handgun and possessing ammunition, dealing property suspected to be the proceeds of crime, possessing a prohibited weapon, possessing a controlled weapon, committing an indictable offence while on bail, and contravening a bail condition.

Another man, 54, was charged on summons in relation to possession of a prohibited weapon, that police are alleging to be a Taser.
A 67-year-old man was also arrested in relation to possession of cannabis and sustained some injures as result of arrest.
