A judge sentenced an Oregon minimart owner to nearly two years behind bars after he was convicted of carrying out $189,000 worth of food stamp fraud.

Nasr Iskander, 39, was sentenced to 22 months in prison Friday after pleading guilty to first-degree aggravated theft, unlawfully using food stamp benefits, and unlawfully obtaining public assistance, the Oregonian reported.

Iskander carried out the $189,000 fraud over three and a half years, and prosecutors say that his customers were complicit in his scheme.

Prosecutors say Iskander ran a minimart out of a Shell gas station in southeast Portland like an ATM because he allowed his customers to exchange cash for benefits.
