OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office says it has arrested an Oklahoma City store owner accused of selling synthetic marijuana.

Officials said Tuesday that Kiem Bao Nguyen (Kim Bow Win) had been arrested on charges of distributing synthetic marijuana and felony money laundering. Oklahoma County court records did not indicate whether Nguyen is represented by an attorney.

Officials said search warrants led to the seizure of 554 packets of synthetic marijuana and $11,332 in cash believed to be related to the alleged distribution of the seized drugs or money laundering.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt says his office is dedicated to disrupting criminal enterprise and is committed to keeping synthetic marijuana off the streets of the state. Pruitt says distribution of the illegal drug is often targeted toward Oklahoma children.
