Drugs and a loaded handgun were seized and a Kenwood Avenue woman taken into custody on illegal drug charges Wednesday morning when officers from a state task force, assisted by Fairfield police, executed a search warrant for narcotics.
Elizabeth Gonzalez, 36, had been under investigation by the Statewide Urban Violence Cooperative Crime Control Task Force on suspicion of selling cocaine in Fairfield and Bridgeport over the past few weeks, according to the report. She was stopped leaving her home and three bags of cocaine were found in her Toyota Corolla, police said.
When officers searched the home, a man -- whose name is being withheld -- was found inside and detained during the operation. In the basement, the task force officers found a loaded Walther PPK 380 in a bag, according to the report. The serial number was mutilated and it's believed the gun was stolen, police said.
Police said they also found Percocet and Oxycodone pills outside of the original container.
Gonzalez was charged by State Police with possession of narcotics, possession of controlled substances outside of the original container and possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school.
