PORTLAND — A Portland woman has been arrested and charged with aggravated trafficking of Oxycodone.
According to a press release issued today by Kevin Cashman, supervisor for the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, MDEA agents and Portland police arrested 23-year-old Brianna Roberts last Friday night.
Cashman said authorities began an investigation after receiving complaints of suspected drug activity at 36 Pine St.
During a search of the residence, police say they located and seized 998 Oxycodone pills that Roberts had stashed in baggies and concealed on her body.
Agents also seized 19 grams of suspected cocaine with an estimated street value of $1,900 from a bedroom.
Roberts was being held this evening at the Cumberland County Jail on $20,000 property bail or $5,000 cash bail. The cash bail would require that Roberts sign a pre-trial contract.
