Two former East Texas dental workers have been accused of selling stolen gold including a piece attached to a bloody tooth.
Heather Ricks Terry and Mary Dorsey are charged with theft. Investigators say the Huntington women last year allegedly sold about $5,000 worth of gold pieces taken from a dental office.
An official with Palmer and Ross Dental Group in Lufkin said Wednesday that both women were fired in December.
Dorsey and Terry were booked Tuesday. Each is free on $3,500 bond.
KTRE-TV reports a buyer told police that some items were clean, but one batch had gold still in a bloody tooth.
Terry in January was charged with fraud after some dental prescriptions allegedly were forged.
Angelina County Jail records did not list attorneys for the women.
