Man sentenced after selling drugs through the mail

MARQUETTE — After selling marijuana through the mail to Escanaba area residents and fleeing to Mexico, a forty five year old man has been sentenced.

Pedro Andres Kobasic, formerly of Phoenix, Arizona, was sentenced to over seven years in prison followed by three years of supervised released. Kobasic was convicted of conspiracy to distribute more than fifty kilograms of marijuana after fleeing from justice and hiding in Mexico for close to three years.

The United States DEA worked on the investigation along with UPSET after they discovered a package of marijuana being sent through the mail.
