Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick announced Thursday a Canadian man was sentenced to 14 years in prison for trafficking 100 kilograms of cocaine from Chicago to New Jersey and then to Canada.
Forty-nine-year-old Sezayir Bulaman of Hemmingford conspired with several other people between October 2012 and November 29, 2012 to travel to Chicago, Illinois to pick up 100 kilograms of cocaine, which was taken to New Jersey and stored in a warehouse there. The cocaine was to be later transported to Canada, according to court documents.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized the cocaine in 2012. Shortly after, Bulaman was indicted, but fought extradition to the U.S.
