Washington man arrested in Pennsylvania with $1 million worth of cocaine: report

A duffel bag with a luggage tag found in his vehicle indicated the suspect flew from Seattle to Philadelphia during a search when the cocaine was discovered, according to news reports.

A Washington state man who flew cross-country was found by Pennsylvania authorities Thursday with 26 pounds of cocaine worth around $1 million, according to reports. 

The Pennsylvania State Police said a Jeep Cherokee driven by Victor Magana was stopped on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Mt. Pleasant Township when the drugs were found, TribLive.com reported. 

The stop was initially over a window tint violation. Troopers grew suspicious when Magana allegedly refused to let them search his vehicle and requested a police dog. The dog indicated drugs were inside the SUV and authorities got a search warrant.
