SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) - A 70-year-old businessman from South Sioux City has been sentenced to about a year in prison after pleading guilty to drug and money laundering charges.

Frank Firoz pleaded guilty last year in U.S. District Court in Omaha to conspiracy to sell drug paraphernalia and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Prosecutors say he and others intended to sell chemical compounds found in synthetic marijuana and a designer drug known as bath salts.

The Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1u1AyfV ) reports he’s been sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison. Firoz owned several head shops called Exotica in Lincoln, Omaha and South Sioux City.

Federal agents seized nearly $900,000 from bank accounts, his home and his stores.
