During the raid, police seized 4.4kg methylamphetamine (ice), which has an estimated value of $1.5m, as well as cash, a loaded pistol, ammunition and several electronic items.
As a result of inquiries and a public appeal, police arrested and charged a 21-year-old Cobbitty man with multiple drugs and firearms offences last month.
Following further investigations, detectives returned to the home about 7am today and arrested a 22-year-old woman.

Investigators also seized a Toyota Corolla, which will be subject to forensic examination.
The woman was charged, and police will allege she pretended to be a registered nurse and altered pay slips and banking records to fraudulently obtain finance to purchase a new vehicle.
She has been granted conditional bail and is expected to appear in court later this year.
