Man sentenced to 15 years for synthetic marijuana

Posted: Updated:
SIOUX CITY (AP) -  A Sioux City man accused of burglary and possessing synthetic marijuana has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

   The Sioux City Journal reports 19-year-old Javen Mobley pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary, and in a separate case, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

   Authorities say Mobley admitted breaking into a house Sept. 1 to steal items, and other people he was with started a fire. Mobley had been charged with second-degree arson in connection to the fire, but the charge was dismissed as part of his plea agreement.

   According to court documents, Mobley was arrested in April during a traffic stop when police found six plastic bags containing synthetic marijuana. The documents say Mobley told officers he was on his way to deliver the substance to a woman.
