CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The U.S. attorney’s office in New Hampshire says three men involved in a scheme that distributed more than 1,000 kilograms of illegal synthetic marijuana products have been sentenced to prison.

Thirty-three-year-old Kyle Hurley of Seabrook, New Hampshire, was sentenced Monday to nine and a half years after pleading guilty to participation in a conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. Seventy-one-year-old Robert Costello of Lawrence, Massachusetts, was sentenced to five years on drug-trafficking charges; and 33-year-old Sean Nolan of Concord was sentenced to 21 months on a charge of distributing a controlled substance.

Prosecutors said Costello and Hurley made and distributed the products in packages named “Scooby Snax,” ”Bizarro,” ”Toxic Blue Magic,” and “Caution Platinum,” sold in convenience stores.

Prosecutors said Nolan assisted in the distribution.
