A New Jersey grocery store owner was sentenced to two years in prison for stealing $1.2 million in a food stamp scheme.

Kaher Abdullah, 58, of Philadelphia pleaded guilty in May for the theft of government funds, which included trading food stamp benefits for cash, NJ.com reported.

Abdullah owned the Express Food Mart located in Camden, New Jersey, which accepted food stamp benefits, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Abdullah allowed those who had benefits to trade them in for cash instead of food for 50 cents on the dollar, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Authorities said he received $1.2 million from those exchanges between November 2011 and October 2014 and paid for personal expenses with the funds
