Inmate accused of hiding drugs in digestive system, dealing in the jail

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

A Covington man previously arrested for impersonating federal law enforcement agents is now accused of dealing drugs inside the Genesee County Jail.

Local Drug Enforcement Task Force members served Nikko C. Gambino, 42, of Morrow Road, Covington, with a search warrant when he recently showed up at the jail to serve part of his eight-week intermittent sentence.

Gambino was transported to UMMC "in order to execute the search warrant," according to a Sheriff's Office press release.

According to the press release, Gambino had alprazolam and suboxone in his digestive system. When Gambino reportedly passed the substances, he allegedly grabbed a quantity of alprazolam and suboxone and placed it inside his mouth in an attempt to further hide or destroy evidence.

Gambino was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, 5th, one count of promoting prison contraband, 1st, tampering with physical evidence and possession of a controlled substance not in its original container.

Following arraignment of Town of Batavia Court, Gambino was returned to Genesee County Jail without bail.

Just thought of it. Jamies comment made me think of it.. I was in a restaurant the other day and ordered a bowl of soup. I noticed when the waiter set the soup in front of me, his thumb was in the soup. I said,"Hey, whats the deal with the thumb?" The waiter replied he had arthritis and the soup made his thumb feel better. Being some what of a wise guy, I said,"Why don't you stick it up your ass?" The waiter leaned over and whispered,"I do when I'm out in the kitchen."
