Maryland State Police, working with multiple allied agencies, arrested close to two dozen people as part of a collaborative effort to suppress illegal drug and gang activity in Cumberland. The initiative took place on March 28 and 29th, and included dismantling an illicit drug distribution operation and the serving of multiple search warrants. Investigators also served multiple arrest warrants and conducted other criminal and traffic enforcement efforts throughout the city of Cumberland and Allegany County. 

Elena Russo told WCBC News it was a major operation in terms of arrests and manpower…

Throughout the two-day initiative, investigators recovered suspected drugs, including 68 grams of cocaine, 50 grams of heroin, 14 grams of crack cocaine, along with amounts of marijuana and Suboxone.
