CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The owner of two West Virginia stores that federal prosecutors say sold bath salts and other synthetic drugs has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
Hot Stuff Cool Things owner Jeffrey Paglia will also spend three years on probation.
Media outlets say that U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley also ordered the 49-year-old Lost Creek resident to forfeit hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of cash and property at Tuesday's hearing.
Paglia must report to prison Aug. 23.
Authorities raided and shut down his stores in Buckhannon and Clarksburg in April 2012. They called the stores a major supplier of illegal bath salts in the region.
Store manager John Skruck failed to show up for his trial on drug charges in May.
U.S. marshals are searching for him.
