New York, Jan 15 (ANI): A woman in New York has been busted for operating a silicone clinic for boob and booty jobs inside her apartment.
Whalesca Castillo, 36, from the Bronx, who the feds claim is an unlicensed doctor, had used silicone mailed to her from her native Dominican Republic.
She was arrested at her home on Inwood Avenue in the Mount Eden section after she was mailed, via FedEx, "a silicone substance" she used as part of an illegal clinic she was operating out of her apartment.
"As we allege, Whalesca Castillo put the health of unsuspecting women at risk, all to make a quick buck," the New York Post quoted Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara, as saying.
"She compounded the danger in which she placed her clients by allegedly discouraging at least one woman from seeking medical attention after she developed complications from the injections.
"We will continue to work with our partners at the FBI and the FDA to expose and prosecute such underground operations that seek to profit by offering unsafe treatments at the expense of public health and safety," Bharara added.
The NYPD, with help from the Manhattan US Attorney's office, made the bust after officials said she had been receiving the packages of silicone for almost two years. (ANI)
