Law enforcement officials took guns and drugs from a pair of convicted felons, according to the Bridgeport Police.

Bridgeport Police Department narcotics detectives and state and federal officers conducted an operation in the east end of Bridgeport Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 1:30 p.m. that reportedly resulted in the seizure of two firearms in the possession of convicted felons, along with a quantity of crack cocaine, said police.
