The VIPER Taskforce has struck Ballarat again with a woman nabbed for gun and drug offences.

It comes after warrants were issued for properties in Rocklyn and Melton South with the taskforce on the hunt for a pistol, gel blaster imitation firearm, air rifle, ammunition, cannabis, hallucinogenic plants and knives.

A 46-year-old woman was arrested Monday after a search of her Rocklyn home found a number of illegal items.
