DECATUR, Ill. (AP) - Illinois authorities say a man allegedly transporting three suitcases containing cocaine from Arizona to Chicago has been arrested.

Macon County State's Attorney Jay Scott says 42-year-old Enrique Vaughan-Montano was arrested on state narcotics-trafficking charges. Vaughan-Montano was traveling on a Greyhound bus that was pulled over Thursday at a rest stop when Decatur detectives engaged him in conversation.

The Herald and Review in Decatur reports (http://bit.ly/179NLTs) Scott said Vaughn-Montana displayed "numerous indicators of criminal activity." He said the detectives got the man's permission to search his luggage. The detectives discovered cocaine worth $1 million concealed in the suitcases' linings.

Authorities say Vaughan-Montana indicated a man in Yuma, Arizona gave him the luggage, promising him $1,000 when it was delivered in Chicago.

Vaughan-Montana is being held in lieu of $2.5 million bond.
