      What secret activity went on in the garage of a seemingly friendly,
      well-liked, balding 60-year-old West Palm Beach man before police
      surrounded his house and arrested him on two felony charges?

      The sheriff's department, the man's neighbors and the man himself -
      Roger Bean - all agree: The "crime" was making dentures and temporary
      bridges for grateful customers at a mere fraction of the price.

      Instead of $2,000 dentures from a dentist, Mr. Bean's clients got
      their dentures from him, fitted, for as little as $200.

      An anonymous tip supposedly made police aware of Mr. Bean's "crimes."
      But news reports reveal Mr. Bean's neighbors and customers had no
      cause for complaint.
