A fake California dentist is in very real trouble for running a meth lab under the cover of a dental office.
Police say 59 year old Joseph Hirsch ran an unlicensed dental office with everything you would find in a real one. He had a dentist’s chair, an X-ray machine, dental tools and other equipment. But he also had tools and equipment used for making drugs like methamphetamine. It’s believed that he treated patients and cooked up meth for about six years.
After a three-month investigation, police raided his office and arrested Hirsch on several drug and weapons charges.
