PORTLAND — Portland police announced today that 19 people have been arrested as the result of a wide-ranging drug sweep in greater Portland that began last Friday.

During the operation, which is being called “Summer Slam.” drug agents recovered 10 grams of crack cocaine from a residence at 1597 Forest Ave. The cocaine’s street value is estimated at $1,000.

Lt. Gary Rogers of the Portland Police Department said the arrests are the result of a multijurisdictional effort involving federal, state, municipal and county law enforcement agencies.

Among the agencies involved were: the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI, the Southern Maine Violent Crimes Task Force and the Department of Homeland Security Investigation.

Aregawi Gebrewahid, 25, Bryan Cobb, 45, Steven Kubari, 21, Earl Taylor, 39, and Jamie Hyler, 29 – all of Portland – were each charged with trafficking in cocaine.

The investigation led to a number of arrests on other charges including: cultivation of marijuana, unlawful possession of a scheduled drug, tampering with a witness, possession of cocaine, violation of bail and trafficking in marijuana.
