State narcotics officials arrested two men after authorities said they received a package containing more than 16 pounds of cocaine from Puerto Rico Wednesday morning.
After learning a package filled with drugs could be delivered to a home in Bridgeport, Statewide Narcotics Task Force went to a home on Rose Street just before 11:30 a.m.
Hector Montilla, 42, and Rafael Casasnovas Jr., 24, were arrested without incident.
Investigators searched the property where they seized 7.5 kilograms of cocaine, $300, additional quantities of crack cocaine, heroin, and packaging material, according to police.
Montilla and Casasnovas were charged with possession of over 1 kilogram of cocaine, conspiracy to commit possession of over 1 kilogram of cocaine, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, and possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school.
Casasnovas and Montilla were being held on $200,000 bond and expected to be arraigned at Bridgeport Superior Court on Thursday.
