BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport man is in custody after police say they found drugs at his home.

Police say they found a pound of pot, crack and powdered cocaine, a gun and $3,400 in cash at the home.

Police Chief AJ Perez says officers tracked Givens for nearly two months and were finally able to make an arrest when they saw him making a drug deal.
