PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man accused of leading a drug trafficking operation that involved the transport of black tar heroin from Mexico to Portland has been sentenced to more than 12 years in prison.

KPTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2bFxsZX ) that Christopher Guillen-Robles was sentenced Tuesday. He previously pleaded guilty to several charges related to the crime, including conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Guillen-Robles was one of more than 20 people arrested in February 2015 after investigators say they were part of a drug trafficking organization that distributed heroin throughout Oregon.

Several large seizures of heroin and cash were made as part of the investigation.

Guillen-Robles has also been ordered to pay $150,000.
