(Harrisburg) -- A businessman in Harrisburg is the third person to plead guilty in connection to a conspiracy to evade hundreds of thousands of dollars in employment taxes.

55-year-old Hung Danh pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to conspiring to evade $337,000 in taxes at HD Staffing, a Harrisburg employee leasing business.

Investigators say the fraud occurred between 2009 and 2010 when the company didn't withhold payroll taxes from the wages of laborers.

Danh, indicted in July 2014, was considered a fugitive until he was detained by customs agents while entering the country at JFK airport in New York. He faces up to 5 years in prison. 

Sentencing is scheduled for January.
