A Lancaster man will spend 33 months in a federal prison for distributing bath salts and synthetic marijuana.
Amerjit Aingh Grewal, 34, received the sentence in U.S. District Court Thursday after pleading guilty to the unlawful distribution of bath salts.
Grewal obtained large quantities of bath salts and synthetic marijuana and then distributed the drugs to be sold in convenience stores and gas stations, according to federal prosecutors.
He allegedly sold almost a half-kilogram of bulk bath salts to an undercover officer in the parking lot of a gas station near Grantville in March 2012.
U.S. District Court Judge Yvette Kane also ordered Grewal to forfeit approximately $500,000 seized by investigators from bank accounts held by Grewal and a co-defendant, Kulwinder Singh Grewal, who has not been sentenced.
