DETROIT (AP) -- The FBI says two sisters wanted for health care fraud in the Detroit area are back in the United States after they were captured in Colombia.
Caridad Guilarte (gil-AHR'-tee) and Clara Guilarte were indicted in 2009 in an alleged scheme to reap millions from the Medicare program through bogus billings.
A spokeswoman for the FBI says the sisters were flown to Miami on Monday night, a day after they were arrested while trying to board a plane in Colombia. The Guilartes eventually will be transported to Detroit. Defense attorneys haven't been assigned yet.
The Guilartes are accused of collecting more than $4 million from Medicare for procedures that were unnecessary or not performed. They were on a list of top 10 medical-fraud fugitives.
