What secret activity went on in the garage of a seemingly friendly,
well-liked, balding 60-year-old West Palm Beach man before police

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.

cause for complaint.
