General manager of Phoenix-area car-wash business pleads guilty

PHOENIX — A manager for a metropolitan Phoenix car-wash chain that’s
accused of immigration fraud in its hiring practices has pleaded guilty to a
federal conspiracy charge.

Jack Edlund is the highest-ranking staff member for Danny’s Family Car Wash to
have been charged in the case.

Edlund served as a general manager for the business from early 2011 to August
2013.

He pleaded guilty to the charge Friday.

Twelve of 14 Danny’s managers who were charged have pleaded guilty.

Some lower-level managers who pleaded guilty have said that at least one
higher-up within the company instructed them to rehire workers who had to be fired
after a federal audit found nearly half of the company’s 1,900-person workforce
were people who weren’t authorized to work in the United States.
