Anthony Brown, 24, of Bridgeport, was charged with possession of marijuana around 11:55 p.m. Thursday when police were alerted to a suspected drug deal.

Brown was allegedly seen making a transaction with two men in a parking space at the Shell gas station, 1139 Post Road. After leaving the station, he was spotted by police at the intersection of Sanford Street and Carter Henry Drive, and then pulled over. Asked if he had anything illegal in his possession, he allegedly pulled a bag of marijuana from the center console.

Brown also charged with operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and failure to carry an insurance card.

He was released on a promise to appear July 1 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
