MADISON (WAOW) -

The last person charged in a major pot bust has been sentenced.

Norberto Burciaga, 40, of St. Paul, Minnesota, will spend ten years in federal prison. In December 2011 he pleaded guilty to planning to grow marijuana in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Authorities said Burciaga and five others were involved.

Investigators say they found more than 9,000 marijuana plants in the forest.
