CHICAGO, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- A Chicago man went from kidnapping and beating victim in the morning to drug suspect by nightfall, police say.

Police said they found Margarito Raygoza, 33, also known as Jose Corona, bound and beaten on the ground in the city's West Lawn neighborhood about 7:50 a.m. CDT Thursday after reports from neighbors, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Raygoza told officers he had been walking when someone kidnapped him and administered a beating, the newspaper said.

Police wound up at Raygoza's home several blocks away where Thursday night they discovered 170 pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, 2 pounds of heroin, more than a half pound of methamphetamine, $47,000 in cash and two handguns, the Tribune said. They also seized three vehicles.

It wasn't clear how police came across the illegal drugs.

It turned out Raygoza also was wanted in connection with a federal narcotics investigation and is scheduled to appear in court Saturday.
