New Orleans, La. - Three men who own several t-shirt and souvenir shops in the French Quarter now face charges of filing false tax returns.

The United States Attorney charged Ibrahim Maqbool, Sayed Sajid and Abdul Hafeez with conspiracy to defraud the government by filing false returns.

Investigators say they skimmed cash from their various businesses and conspired together to file at least one false federal income tax return.

The businesses operated under various names, including Bourbon Boutique, All That Jazz, Nawlin's Blues, and Zydecajun.

The three face up to five years in prison if convicted.
