(LAWRENCEBURG) - Police are seeking 67 suspects yet after arresting 41 people and raiding several Mexican restaurants in southeastern Indiana .

Indiana State Excise Police spokesman Cpl. Travis Thickstun says the 41 face identity theft and other charges after an 18-month investigation of five Acapulco Mexican Restaurants owned by Adolfo Lopez of Lawrenceburg. He was being held on $3 million bond Wednesday at the Dearborn County Jail in Lawrenceburg. It's not clear whether he has an attorney.

The raids Monday targeted restaurants in Lawrenceburg, Batesville, Rising Sun, Aurora and Versailles. Police also searched a tax preparation service in Greenwood and several banks and seized about $3 million in cash.

Several charges allege about 100 restaurant employees filed tax returns under fraudulent Social Security numbers. Other charges include money laundering, forgery, perjury and theft.
