The Miami-Dade Police Department, Medical Crimes Unit, arrested a woman for operating an unlicensed post-cosmetic surgery home/assisted living facility.
According to investigators, they received a tip that a post-surgery patient may be held against her will at a residence located at 7771 NW 7 Street. Investigators from the Human Trafficking and Medical Crimes Units responded and discovered a fully operational unlicensed recovery home/assisted living facility. They made contact with Maidelys Sanchez who granted consent to enter the residence. Once investigators entered, they observed eight women in different stages of post-operative recovery. Three employees were also interviewed and they stated that they were paid in cash by Maidelys Sanchez. She was placed under arrest and charged accordingly. Investigators from the Illegal Dumping Unit were summoned to dispose of all bio-hazard waste.
