Gloucester, Va. – A Gloucester man has been indicted and arrested for his involvement in a marijuana trafficking case through the United States Postal Service, according to the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office.

Christopher Scott Riley, age 42, of Gloucester, Virginia, was recently indicted and arrested for his involvement in the case.

Further investigation of the package revealed more than 5-lbs of Marijuana, officials say.This quantity of illegal narcotics has a street value of about $22,400.

The marijuana was then repackaged and a controlled delivery was conducted by GCSO Narcotics Investigators and Agents, which lead to Riley’s recent grand jury indictment and arrest, officials tell NewsChannel 3.

Riley is currently released on bond, awaiting his trial.
