CAMDEN — A Canadian was sentenced to 14 years in prison Thursday for his role in trafficking and storing 100 kilograms of cocaine in New Jersey, acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick said.

Sezayir Bulaman, 49, of Hemmingford, Quebec province, had pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute cocaine.

Bulaman helped in the scheme to pick up the cocaine in Chicago, transport it to a New Jersey warehouse, then transport it to Canada between October and Nov. 29, 2012, according to court documents.

An FBI investigation led to the seizure of the cocaine and the indictment in 2012.

Bulaman fought extradition, Fitzpatrick said.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Kulger handed down a sentence of 14 years in prison plus five years of supervised release.
