A federal prosecutor says the arrests of two suburban Kansas City hotel owners for knowingly employing undocumented workers sends a signal that cutting corners to gain a competitive advantage won't be tolerated.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom on Tuesday announced charges against 51-year-old Munir Ahmad Chaudary and his wife, 40-year-old Rhonda Bridge. Their two companies and a man who worked for them also were named in the indictment.

Grissom says the Overland Park, Kan., couple owned Clarion Hotels in Overland Park and near Kansas City International Airport in Missouri. He says the government is seeking to have the hotels -- with an estimated combined value of around $5 million -- forfeited to the government.

Chaudary and Bridge were expected to be released after making a court appearance Tuesday.
