RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond Sheriff's Office says a contraband was found on a man arrested Tuesday by Virginia State Police.

The sheriff's office says four pills of an unverified substance and a $5 bill containing a powdery substance was found on Virgil Leroi Williams.

"After allowing the arrestee to declare any other contraband, Mr. Williams produced a clear bag containing individually wrapped bags of a light brown powder, as well as individually wrapped bags of a white powder," the sheriff's office said in a news release on Wednesday.

Williams was charged with possession of a schedule 1 or 2 controlled substance; intent to sell, give, manufacture, or distribute a schedule 1 or 2 controlled substance; and possession of an unlawful chemical substance.

A state lab is analyzing the items found on Williams.
