Three Ukrainians have been arrested on criminal hacking charges including stealing payment card numbers, in attacks on more than 100 U.S. companies that cost businesses tens of millions of dollars, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday.

US prosecutors alleged that the three Ukrainians, who were arrested in Europe between January and June, are members of FIN7, a notorious cyber crime gang.

Victims include the Chipotle Mexican Grill, Emerald Queen Hotel and Casino in Washington state, Jason’s Deli, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Sonic Drive-in and Taco John’s, according to the Justice Department. The Emerald Queen stopped the attack and no customer data was stolen, prosecutors said in a press release.

FIN7 has previously been linked to breaches of Trump Hotels, Whole Foods, Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor, according to cyber security firm Trend Micro.

One of the three defendants, Fedir Hladyr, 33, has been transferred to Seattle from Dresden, Germany, where he was arrested.

Authorities said they are seeking the extradition of the other two: Dmytro Fedorov, 44, and Andrii Kolpakov, 30.

Hladyr has pleaded not guilty and denies wrongdoing, according to his attorney, Arkady Bukh.
