GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Minnesota man accused of growing marijuana in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest has been sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison.
Norberto Burciaga will spend that time behind bars for his part of a conspiracy to produce pot in the forest near Clam Lake. He had entered a guilty plea last December.
He was arrested last August with five other men when the marijuana operation was raided by more than 200 law enforcement officers from local, state and federal agencies.
Hunters reported finding it in November 2010. After months of surveillance, more than 9,400 pot plants were seized and the men arrested.
