BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man is facing several charges after police say he operated an illegal drug operation out of a home on Wilmont Avenue.

Police say they found drugs, scales, more than $7,000 in cash and several guns, some of which were stolen.

Gang members were using the vacant home to provide addicts with crack in exchange for stolen items including dirt bikes, gardening equipment and generators, according to police.

Officials say 34-year-old Yero Walker has been charged in connection to the drug operation. He is due in court on Monday.
