Woman Breaks into Dentist’s Office, Pulls 13 Teeth From Patient

There are some headlines that you just never expect to read.  They are just so downright bizarre, and utterly unfathomable that they become hard to comprehend; like when an octopus contorts its body to squeeze through some tiny hole and our human brains start to itch, trying to figure out just what it is that we’re looking at.

This headline is just such a headline, and brings to mind all sorts of questions regarding the security of the local dentist’s office.

A Nevada woman broke into a dentist’s office, stole money and pulled 13 teeth from an unconscious patient on two separate occasions, according to Washoe County police.

Deputies allege that Laurel Eich – who is not a dentist – broke into a dental office where she claimed she had formerly worked.

And that’s not all…

Eich allegedly stole $22,861 in cash and checks during the May 3 break-in, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. Meanwhile, the tooth extraction occurred on a different date than the break-in, Eich told detectives. She also admitted to using anesthetic disposed of by the office, police said.

Law enforcement stated that Eich had confessed her crimes to multiple people – including members of the local sheriff’s office.
