ODESSA - An Odessa adult bookstore owner has pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

67-year-old Jimmy Wayne Wright admitted that he has been selling bath salts out of his store.

As part of the plea deal, Wright will spend 20 months in prison and turn over more than $750,000 in cash and property.

He was selling them out of his business, B & L Bookstore, and would sell them under fake names and descriptions like pipe cleaner, plant food and stain remover.

Back in March, DEA agents seized several containers of bath salts.

No sentencing date has been scheduled yet.
