BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A Bridgeport man wanted for three counts of failing to appear in court was tracked down by state troopers in a gang unit who found that his home was being used for a drug operation, according to the Connecticut Post.

Troopers from the Statewide Urban Violence Task Force arrested Dominique Bigger, 22, outside his home at 331 Maple St., without incident, the Connecticut Post reported. Troopers found a loaded Glock pistol, extra ammunition and marijuana, in addition to heroin on Bigger, said the Connecticut Post.

Police told the Connecticut Post that two young children were in the house and had access to the firearm. Bigger, who is being held on $70,950 in four separate bonds, faces numerous new charges in addition to his existing charge for failure to appear, added the Connecticut Post.
