Their crimes go back to Detroit for the tune of around $4 million in billing Medicare for drug therapies that were either not necessary or not performed at a clinic in Dearborn over the period of 18 months.

The hunt for two sisters wanted for health care fraud in the Detroit area ended when they were arrested as they tried to board a plane in Colombia , authorities said Tuesday. Caridad Guilarte, 54, and Clara Guilarte, 56, were on a most-wanted list on the website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services , which runs Medicare . The sisters are charged with collecting more than $4 million from Medicare for drug therapies that were unnecessary or not performed at a clinic in Dearborn over an 18-month period. The Guilartes were taken to Miami on Monday, a day after they were arrested while trying to board a plane in Colombia, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said.
