SEATTLE — A Marysville man was sentenced Friday to 12 years in a federal prison for his role in a multinational drug trafficking ring.

Jacob Burdick, 34, was part of an organization that transported and distributed up to 2,000 pounds of marijuana and 200 kilograms of cocaine every month, according to the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

Burdick ran a warehouse in Kent where the marijuana was unloaded and sorted for transport, in addition to other tasks.

The case was investigated by a variety of federal, state and local police agencies.
