PITTSBURGH (AP) - Authorities say a western Pennsylvania businessman has been charged with harboring and transporting people who weren’t legally in the country and who worked at his restaurants.

Federal prosecutors said a two-count federal grand jury indictment unsealed Monday names 44-year-old Xing Zheng Lin, also known as Steve Lin.

Authorities allege that from about 2009 until January 2014, the McKees Rocks resident harbored and transported people who weren’t legally in the country and who worked at Saga Restaurant in Monroeville, Robinson and Bethel Park.

Defense attorney Frederick Sproull declined comment on the charges Monday.
