Two Arrested In Alleged Gun Deal

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Bridgeport police say they’ve arrested two men in an alleged gun-for-drugs deal.

The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/ZD6lj2 ) that Gregg Cavalier of Bridgeport was charged with illegal trafficking of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit and illegal transfer of a firearm.

Authorities raided an apartment in Bridgeport last week and arrested Elijah Lewis, who is on probation for gun charges. During a search, police said they found crack cocaine, heroin, marijuana, prescription pain killers, money and a .38-caliber handgun.

Police said they traced a gun to the 58-year-old Cavalier, whose pistol permit was revoked in November 2011.

Police say the .38-caliber gun recovered in the raid was the second firearm traced to Cavalier, a Trumbull resident.

It was not known Monday morning if Cavalier or Lewis is represented by a lawyer.
