JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The President and CEO of a Jacksonville-based liquor distribution company has been arrested on multiple tax fraud charges.

39-year-old Christopher Eiras is facing 70 charges, including moving or concealing alcoholic beverage with intent to defraud state of excise tax and submitting false reports to avoid excise tax.

JSO arrested Eiras Monday afternoon. His bond is set at 2.25 million dollars.

According to its website, the Liquor Group Wholesale, founded in 2002 on the First Coast, says it "offers distribution at a standardized markup to all brands and allows any size brand to compete in the market."

The Liquor Group currently distributes to 33 states.

Eiras has his first court appearance Thursday morning.
