Junior transfer Michael Syrett's days might be numbered on the Georgetown Tigers baseball team after Georgetown Police find hundreds of prescription pills on him Friday night.

He's listed on the athletics website as a shortstop from Huntington Beach, California.

Now he's listed on Scott County's District Court docket for next Tuesday, facing a charge for trafficking in a controlled substance.

"Our role right now is to cooperate with the police department in their investigation and I've said as much to the officer," said Dr. Todd Gambill, Georgetown College's Dean of Students.

That investigation led police to find eleven hundred Percocet pills on Syrett on Georgetown College's campus.

Police estimate the value of those pills to be around thirty three thousand dollars on the street.

"There certainly is an accountability process that the college has in place to deal with the circumstances in which one of our students fail to live up to the code of conduct that we expect of Georgetown College students," Gambill.

He says Syrett's future as a student at the college will depend on the investigation.

Police are still looking into how Syrett got so many prescription pills and where he got them from.

Police say they are working with the United States Postal Service in the investigation.
