PONTIAC, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities in Livingston County, Ill.,
have charged a man from Georgia and two Californians with drug
trafficking after police found an estimated 340 pounds of marijuana
on a private plane.

Forty-six-year-old Alan Luster of Marietta, Ga., 44-year-old
Ernest Austin of Fontana, Calif., and 30-year-old Cher Holland of
Los Angeles are each charged with marijuana trafficking.

They remained in custody at the county jail with bonds of
$200,000 for Holland and Austin and a $400,000 bond for Luster.

Pontiac police searched a 1971 Beechcraft plane Monday after it
landed at the Pontiac Municipal Airport on Monday. They say the
plane had been bound from California to Ohio, but stopped in
Illinois because of bad weather.

Police say they found several duffel bags filled with marijuana
on board the plane.
