A woman in Kamloops, B.C., was arrested this week as part of an ongoing investigation into botched cosmetic procedures, RCMP said.

The procedures that RCMP describe as “fraudulent medical services” were allegedly being done in a private residence in the North Shore neighbourhood of Kamloops and Mounties launched their investigation following a series of complaints.

“Police were made aware of the allegations earlier this month and since then, investigators have spoken to several people who have reported receiving botched procedures,” said Corp. Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson.
