    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A man was held Wednesday on charges that he performed dental work on customers without a license in his "filthy" garage, authorities said. Roger Bean, 60, was arrested Tuesday and held on $6,000 bond.

    Bean performed denture fittings and made false teeth in his garage, charging just $200 for a full set of dentures, a procedure that typically costs more than $2,000, authorities said. But he was not licensed to practice in Florida.

    Palm Beach County Sheriff's detective Don Zumpano said there were "health risks with operating this type of facility outside of your house," adding that Bean's workspace was "filthy."

    Neighbors and clients, however, praised Bean for saving them thousands of dollars.

    Ron St. Mary, 73, head of the neighborhood crime watch, said Bean is no criminal.

    "He's helping the old people who don't have a few dollars," he said. "I think the world of him."

    It was not immediately clear if Bean had an attorney.
