Decatur man arrested at Champaign bus terminal in drug case

URBANA — A Decatur man faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of having crack cocaine intended for sale on him this week.

Frank Davis Jr., 32, was charged Thursday with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance after being arrested at the Illinois Terminal in downtown Champaign Wednesday.

An Illinois State Police report said police acted on a tip that Davis would be traveling on a Greyhound bus from Chicago with cocaine.

He was stopped as he walked across the parking lot and agreed to let a trooper search his bag. In it, the trooper found 14 grams of suspected crack cocaine. Davis told the trooper he went to Chicago to get it and planned to take it back to Decatur to sell it.

Davis is being held in the Champaign County jail in lieu of $20,000 bond and was told to be back in court June 12.
