After several simultaneous raids in central Maryland, immigration authorities say they have taken 29 people into custody.

The raids are part of a wider program to crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants. Agents carried out the raids at two restaurants, several homes and offices in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties.

The people taken into custody are being photographed, fingerprinted and interviewed by health care workers.

Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold says one of the raids focused on the Timbuktu Restaurant in Hanover and several nearby homes where restaurant workers lived.
