FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A 37-year-old Dallas-Fort Worth-area man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for money laundering in a plea deal related to his illegal drug trafficking business operating between Texas and California.

U.S. Attorney John Parker said Monday that Hao Tran, of Grand Prairie, also has been ordered to forfeit property related to his money laundering, including land in Grand Prairie, a Bentley and two Mercedes, a Hummer, and jewelry and cash.

Court documents show Tran bought a $150,000 cashier’s check using money that came from his drug trafficking operation.

Tran has been in custody since August 2015 on a related federal criminal complaint.
