A Gary police officer is in custody on federal drug and weapons charges.

He's 31-year old David Finley, Jr. of Merrillville, Indiana.

A spokesperson for the FBI says undercover agents purchased cocaine and a gun from Finley last month.

A federal magistrate ordered that Finley remain jailed until a detention hearing on Friday. It wasn't immediately clear whether he has a defense attorney.
