TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

 Tucson News Now has learned 40-year old Ilda Garcia is in Pima County Jail on Sunday after being charged with one count of practicing medicine without a license.

Pima County Sheriff deputies tell us information is limited right now, but said Garcia was arrested Friday. Garcia is currently being held without bond, according to Pima County Jail information.

Another person, 51-year old Gustavo Nunez, was arrested last month after authorities said he performed liposuction out of his home on the Northwest side without a medical license. Authorities said Garcia’s arrested is in connection with this case. Pima County Sheriff detectives said at least one person has been hospitalized because of work they received by Nunez.

Both Nunez and Garcia were arrested last year in a different case, accused of performing liposuction procedures without a medical license.
