PORTLAND, Maine — A local woman is behind bars after police seized nearly 1,000 oxycodone pills and cocaine on Friday.

Briana Roberts, 23, is facing a charge of aggravated trafficking in oxycodone after drug enforcement agents executed a search warrant at her Pine Street residence, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

The warrant was served by Portland police, along with drug agents, and authorities seized pills that have an estimated street value of $15,000, along with 19 grams of cocaine that was packaged for resale. The oxycodone was discovered in small plastic bags and the cocaine in a bedroom, McCausland said.

Roberts was arrested and taken to the Cumberland County Jail, where she was held over the weekend on $10,000 bail. Her first court appearance was Monday.
