A Nevada woman who broke into a dentist's office to steal thousands of dollars had also extracted 13 teeth from a victim, according to police.

Laurel Eich, 42, was arrested earlier this week and charged with multiple felony counts, including burglary, grand larceny and performing surgery without a license.

In May police responded to an after-hours break-in at a dental office in Sun Valley. They found an open door, broken window and $22,861 in cash and checks stolen.

Washoe County Sheriff's Office identified Eich as a person of interest, who was an employee at the dental office but not a dentist.

During the investigation, Eich confessed to detectives that she had earlier performed 13 tooth extractions on one person, despite not having a license.

She admitted that she unlawfully performed the procedure and used anesthetic that had been disposed of by the dental office.

According to The Daily Mail, the Sheriff's office said she did the teeth extractions "on her own time" but did not elaborate on the incident.
