Three Portland residents are facing drug charges after police searched their home on Main Street and found marijuana, packaging materials, scales, drug paraphernalia and $2,700 cash, authorities said.

Georgios Sirgos, 20, Brooke Vigneri, 23, and David Short, 31, all of 10 East Main Street in Portland, were arrested after Portland police and members of the East Central Narcotics Task Force searched their home Feb. 11 and discovered the drugs and cash. Portland police K-9 units helped with the search.

The investigation began after authorities received tips that the residents were part of a drug trafficking operation in Glastonbury, police said.

Sirgos and Vigneri were charged with possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a drug factory and possession of steroids. Vigneri faces an additional charge of interfering with a search warrant.

Short was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bonds for all three were set at $10,000.
