Man admits having truckload of cocaine

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- A January sentencing date is scheduled for a California man who admits having nearly 200 pounds of cocaine when police stopped his truck in southwestern Illinois.

Thirty-nine-year-old Myles Paul of Lynnwood, Calif., pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court in East St. Louis to possessing the cocaine with plans to deal it.

Illinois State Police arrested Paul on June 11 during a traffic stop near Madison.

Federal grand jurors indicted him six days later.

Paul faces 10 years to life in prison and a fine of up to $4 million when he's sentenced on Jan. 29.
