PHOENIX -- The indictment from an investigation of a Phoenix-area car wash business and its staffing-service provider is expected to be unsealed Monday after people who were arrested in the case make their initial court appearances.

Federal agents served search and arrest warrants Saturday at 16 locations associated with Danny's Family Car Wash and the company's staffing service provider, HR Betty.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the investigation targeted the owners and leaders of the two businesses and that multiple people faced charges of criminal immigration fraud, identity theft and financial violations.

Fourteen people were arrested on criminal charges.

Eric Falbe, general counsel for Danny's Family Car Wash, said Sunday that the company is cooperating with investigators. He declined further comment.

A message left Sunday at HR Betty wasn't immediately returned.
