LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A former Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, who KNX 1070 has been reporting on for almost a year, walked into an LAPD sting Friday morning and was arrested.

Cosmetic Surgeon Busted In LAPD Sting

Dr. Ehab Mohammed used to perform $100,000 liposuctions, but now he has been arrested on suspicion of grand theft.

He thought he was going to sell a piece of medical equipment, which he does not own to a Connecticut spa for $20,000, according to police. Instead, he was met by LAPD investigators.

The Owner of the spa helped arrange the sting and talked to KNX 1070’s Investigative Reporter Charles Feldman exclusively. She said she became suspicious after seeing Feldman’s reports online.

“That essentially was the main red flag in all honesty, the fact that he had been reported on numerous times by your agency led to great suspicion,” she said.

The LAPD and the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office are looking into possible criminal charges involving the death of one of Dr. Mohammed’s patients. His medical license has been suspended.

    Good job Charles Feldman. It was YOUR work that stopped this “alleged” doctor from killing anyone else. YOU are the reason we need GOOD reporters.

    I would like to know what type of medical equipment he was trying to sell. The theft of medical equipment from hospitals, medical and doctor’s offices has been a major problem for a number of years, here and around the world.

    Hi. My name is Sherry Melancon. I follow your investigation reports and enjoy listening to your stories. I just want to make a comment about an incident that my husband and I just experienced at LAX. We recently flew into LAX on Saturday. August 6th,2011 from a wonderful week long vacation in Monterey. Bay and Carmel. Our troubles began as we were to depart from Monterey,with a connecting flight to San Francisco then to LAX. After being told our connecting flight to LAX was cancelled and many other issues (which is another story within itself,dealing with United Airlines), we finally arrived to LAX around 5am August. 6th. After numerous cancellations and a day late we weren’t sure if our luggage would be there for us or not. Well fortunately it was BUT where we found it was a surprise. While waitring for the luggage my husband used the restroom and as he was walking to the restroom he noticed a large suitcase just over by itself. It looked like ours and it was ours. The shocking thing was our luggage.was located just inside the public entrance. It stood alone and there was not a sign designating that lost or unclaimed luggage belonged there. After listening to your reports about LAX and security, etc, this is what first came to mind. Other passengers were being escorted to United’s locked room to claim their luggage as ours stood out in the open just a few steps from a main entrance. Anyone could have easily taken it. Now where is the security in that? I blame both LAX and United Airlines. I’m all for the security checks to keep us safe and all but the lack of security in not putting our luggage away upsets me to no end. Thankfully we were able to recover the luggage but the lack of responsibility in doing their jobs correctly could have turned out much worse. LAX in my opinion is not a safe place to be. It was my first time flying to LAX and will be my last. There is still a lot of issues that need to be addressed. Footnote to this is our travels with United Airlines was HORRIBLE!! I will never use them again. That’s another story I will share with you if interested. It is something worth looking into. I have contacted and filed complaints with each company. Thank you for your time.
