Agents say man pretended to be doctor

Judicial investigators detained a man Thursday morning and said he was pretending to be a medical doctor. Agents said this is the third time they have detained the man for the same crime. They said he had been detained last January and also in December.

The man is accused of making house calls to treat obesity with injections. He was detained near his home in Los Sitios de Moravia.

The man gave his patients various explanations as to why he did not maintain an office and said he worked at a medical examiner for the Poder Judicial, agents reported.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the man probably had other patients, and they urged them to make contact.
