Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 114 employees of a gardening and landscaping company in Ohio on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

The employer, Corso's Flower & Garden Center, has been under investigation since October of 2017, after a woman who was arrested for providing stolen identification documents to job applicants told ICE officials to monitor the landscaping company.

Tuesday's raid was the largest single-day sting since April, when ICE agents arrested 97 employees at a Tennessee meatpacking plant. No charges have been filed against Corso's (or the Tennessee plant, for that matter), but ICE reportedly plans to file charges of identity theft and tax evasion against the landscaping employees.
