MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - New charges and a higher bond have been levied against a former Alabama corrections officer who was arrested on trafficking and possession charges Sunday.

Now, he's charged with two counts of possession of marijuana, two counts of trafficking in illegal drugs, and ten counts of possession of a controlled substance. A new bond amount is set at $3.75 million.

Giles was arrested by Alabama Department of Corrections agents at Kilby Correctional Facility where he worked. Following his arrest, Giles resigned the position he'd held for the past three years.
