Police executed a search warrant at Ozzimo Way in Werribee this morning.
The warrant relates to an investigation by the Melton Crime Investigation Unit into a burglary which occurred recently at an address in Truganina.
Upon executing the warrant at about 9.30am, a male allegedly fled from the house and police began searching the area.
Wyndham TV spoke to one of the residents who said the man had run through her backyard while being chased by police.
She went to a neighbour’s house until the ordeal had ended.
She advised us that the streets were blocked off by multiple police and the airwing was circling.
A 35-year-old man was arrested at a neighbouring address a short time later.
Firearms, ammunition and a small quantity of what is believed to be methylamphetamine was located as a result of the search warrant.
The man has been taken to hospital for observation, and is expected to be charged later today.
