BRIDGEPORT - The pastor of a Norwalk church is facing drug charges after police in Bridgeport say they caught him trying to buy marijuana and cocaine.

Pastor Kenneth DuBose spoke with News 12 today.  He did not deny trying to buy drugs, but he did say, "What has been meant for evil is going to turn around for the good."

Police in Bridgeport say they arrested DuBose Wednesday night on Texas Avenue as he was trying to buy what they call a "sizeable amount" of marijuana and crack. 
 
Police say they also seized a large amount of money and a gun.

Many people say they are disappointed about the allegations.

For decades, St. James Missionary Baptist Church has been known as a place to come for inspiring services. 

There's no word on whether DuBose plans on preaching at the church on Sunday.
