AUGUSTA — Three people were arrested on drug trafficking charges Monday evening after police searched a property on Crosby Street Place and reportedly found several grams of cocaine.

Augusta police obtained a search warrant for the property after a joint investigation with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, according to a news release Tuesday morning from Jared Mills, deputy chief of the Augusta department.

No address was provided for the property. During the search, which happened around 5:30 p.m., three people were taken into police custody.
