Eich admitted to several people, including detectives, that he had performed a medical procedure and used an anesthetic dispensed by the dental office. used,” the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Eich was arrested earlier this week and charged with two counts of burglary and one each of major theft, conspiracy to commit theft and the other performing surgery without a medical license.
He is in custody at the Washoe County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
