BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say nearly 20 people have been arrested as part of a major drug bust in the area.

Bridgeport Police Department's Tactical Narcotics Team, also known as TNT, was tipped off by neighbors about the alleged drug deals. According to The Connecticut Post, detectives staked out an apartment on Coleman Street for several months.

Last week, police say they seized 171 bags of cocaine, ecstasy pills and marijuana from the apartment. Children were inside the home at the time of the bust, authorities say.
