KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - One of two northeast Kansas twin brothers has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his role in a multistate marijuana-trafficking operation.

The Lawrence Journal-World (https://bit.ly/1jA1SNY ) reports 33-year-old Los Rovell Dahda was sentenced Wednesday and fined almost $17 million. Dahda and his brother Roosevelt Rico Dahda, both of Lawrence, were found guilty last year of conspiracy. They were among 43 people accused in Kansas and California in connection with the trafficking ring.

Authorities say the ring brought 8,000 pounds of marijuana, much of it from California, into Lawrence and the Kansas City area over seven years until 2012.

Investigators say they seized almost $17 million in drug proceeds in the case.

Roosevelt Rico Dahda was sentenced to more than 19 years in federal prison on Tuesday.
