A college baseball player may face federal charges.

Georgetown Police arrested 22-year-old Michael Syrett. He's charged with trafficking a controlled substance.

Georgetown College officials joined federal investigators at the Georgetown police department Monday, discussing the case against Syrett.

Police say the Georgetown College junior transfer received 1,100 percoset pills in the mail Friday on campus. According to police, the pills had an estimated street value of $33,000. Detectives say Syrett told them, the pills were for someone else.

"The narcotics were shipped in via the Post Office. So, you've got another source outside of Georgetown that was shipping them to Georgetown," said Lt. Robert Swanigan.

Police won't say if anyone else may face charges in the case.
