MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Three men face federal charges in connection with a drug ring that used tour buses to move millions of dollars and marijuana between Detroit and Tucson, Arizona.

U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic says authorities seized about $3.7 million in cash from the drug ring in recent weeks.

The men -- 32-year-old Terrance Lamont Davis, of Tucson, 26-year-old Detroit resident Calvin C. Wiggins and 20-year-old James L. Reaves, also of Detroit -- are being held in Tucson. They have been charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana and could face life in prison and millions in fines if convicted.

Authorities in Illinois, Michigan, Arizona and Oklahoma assisted in the bust.

A criminal complaint filed in federal court in Milwaukee says the ring used a Chicago-based tour bus company as a front, had two buses and paid people to act as passengers and drivers.

The buses would travel between Chicago, Detroit, Phoenix and Tucson, picking up and dropping off drugs and money.
