A Nevada woman is accused of breaking into a dental office, stealing cash from it and pulling more than a dozen teeth from someone despite not having a medical license.
Laurel Eich, who was an employee of the business, admitted to detectives that she did perform a procedure to extract 13 teeth from an unidentified person and used anesthetic disposed of by the dental office. The incident came to light during an investigation into a break-in at the Reno business. The burglar, who had already fled the building, stole nearly $23,000 in cash and checks.
The illegal tooth extractions happened at a different date before the burglary. The woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with multiple felonies, including performing surgery on another without a license, burglary of a business, grand larceny and violation of probation or condition of a suspended sentence. She was also charged with a misdemeanor count of conspiracy to commit burglary. Read on!
