TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A married couple who own several temporary staffing companies in New Jersey are accused of hiding more than $30 million in income.

State authorities say 48-year-old Andres Minaya and his 29-year-old wife, Jenny, grossly underreported the number of employees their companies outsourced. They say the Milltown couple’s actions resulted in the underpayment of their workers’ compensation insurance premiums and income tax from 2009-2013.

Both Minayas were arrested Tuesday and are charged with financial facilitation of criminal activity. Both face a lengthy prison term if convicted.

Andres Minaya is also charged with insurance fraud and filing a false return.

The couples’ $1.5 million home was also seized because it was allegedly purchased with illicit funds.

The Minayas remained in custody Wednesday, and it wasn’t known if they have retained attorneys.
