Bloody dental tools found in car boot

ORLANDO, US: A man believed to have practised dentistry in Florida without a licence was found driving around with bloody dental instruments in his car.

Police officers said Luis Sanchez jumped a red light and was stopped in Palm Beach.

When they checked the car, dirty dental instruments, syringes, prescription drugs, and a rusty table were discovered in the boot of his car.

After questioning Sanchez, police discovered he was practising without a licence.

His home was later searched and more equipment was found, investigators added.

Sanchez is accused of running a mobile dental lab out of his car.

He admitted to investigators that he did dental work at the homes of 20 to 30 of his friends.

Sanchez admitted he was not licensed in the US, but claimed he was a dentist in Cuba.

Now, concern is for his patients who are urged to see a doctor immediately.
