The owners of two local dairy farms have been indicted on charges of hiring and harboring undocumented workers.

U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade announced the Parisville Dairy and Dunganstown and their owners Denis and Madeline Burke, who live in Cass City, were indicted by a federal Grand Jury.

The couple is accused of conspiring to transport, conceal and harbor undocumented immigrants from 2007 through June of 2013.

The indictments, which were unsealed prior to the couple's arraignment, allege many of the workers were hired multiple times, using different names and or social security numbers.

This case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's office in Bay City.
