Quincy man busted for illegal breast injections

The Associated Press

QUINCY, Grant County – Police in Quincy want to hear from anyone who may be a victim of a man accused of illegally giving a woman injections to increase the size of her breasts and buttocks.

Police said Thursday they arrested the 32-year-old, Mario Palafox Valle, when he was found hiding in a closet during a search of his home. He’s jailed for investigation of practicing medicine without a license.

Earlier this month the state Health Department ordered him to stop giving augmentation injections because he has no health care credentials. The woman who received the injections had to undergo corrective surgery.

The Wenatchee World reports police believe there are additional victims.
