BRIDGEPORT - Two men are facing charges following a Bridgeport drug bust.

Bridgeport police say they made a significant drug and weapons bust on Monday.

The Crime Control Task Force, which is made up of Bridgeport police and state troopers, says it seized evidence from a home on Capital Avenue.

The task force says it got information that illegal activity was happening in the house. Officials say they found marijuana, cash, illegal guns and 2,000 rounds of ammunition during the raid. The police chief says one of the men pulled a weapon on detectives.

Police say the two men call themselves the Westside boys -- a subset of the Bloods gang.
