MERIDEN — Two local men face charges after police said they were found in a car with a loaded gun and drugs following a report of a fight on Sunday.

Isaac Wilson, 21, of 42 N. First St., was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm and possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle.

Julian Dudley, 24, of 24 Twiss St., was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, and interfering with police.

A juvenile in the car was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, and possession of a controlled substance.

Police responded to the area of 22 North Street about 7:50 p.m. for a report of a dozen people involved in a fight and found that one man had been hit with a baseball bat, according to a police report.

A witness pointed out a car leaving the area and told police the occupants were involved in the incident. Police stopped the car, which Wilson was driving. A juvenile and Dudley were passengers. Wilson “is a confirmed Blood gang member that was a suspect in a shooting” in Meriden, the report said.

Officers searched the vehicle and found 1.5 grams of cocaine, 6.6 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and a loaded revolver, the report said. Police seized $188 from Wilson and $60 from Dudley, the report said.

When Wilson, Dudley and the juvenile were interviewed by police, they denied the charges, the report said.

Dudley and Wilson were arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Monday. According to statements in court, Dudley has previous convictions for sale of narcotics and is on probation. The judge set bond for Dudley at $35,000 and continued the case to Oct. 2.

The bail commissioner said Wilson has previous convictions for weapon charges. The judge set bond for Wilson at $175,000 and continued the case to Oct. 2.
