A New London man was arrested on drug and firearm charges Friday when police were conducting foot patrols of the downtown bars area.

At about 11:29 p.m., officers observed two males involved in what they believe was a hand-to-hand drug transaction near the municipal parking lots between Eugene O’Neill Drive and Pearl Street.

Luis Gonzales, Jr., 43, of 27 Cutler St. was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, criminal possession of a firearm, and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Gonzales was being held Saturday on a $100,000 cash/surety bond.
