A 45-year-old man was arrested at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix after he tried to smuggle more than 2 pounds of cocaine in a checked bag early Saturday, officials said.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Vince Lewis said Jason Bunts was arrested at 1:15 a.m. after Transportation Security Administration agents found more than 2 pounds of cocaine in a checked bag belonging to him.

Bunts' American Airlines flight to Chicago had to return to the gate briefly for police to place him under arrest, Lewis said.

He was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of possession of narcotic drugs for sale.
