There will be no piff-puffin in jail.

Correction Officers Arrested For Dealing Drugs To Inmates

According to The NY Post

Two city correction officers were charged today with dealing sticky icky to inmates on Rikers Island.

Austin Romain and Khalif Phillips, both 31, were busted while on the job after getting ratted out by jailhouse snitches who were their alleged customers.

Both guards operated independently of each other but used similar methods to sell drugs and other contraband — including scalpels and tobacco — to prisoners inside maximum-security facilities at the jail complex, according to the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Both men arranged to get paid by the jailbirds’ wives and girlfriends — usually via Western Union money transfers — then smuggled the drugs onto Rikers and hid them inside garbage pails, light fixtures and lockers, court papers said.

The inmates would then retrieve the drugs from the drop spots, court papers said.

Romain was accused of selling drugs he purchased on his own for between $300 and $800 an ounce — depending on its quality — while Phillips was accused of charging $1,000 to pass along a package of pot provided to him.

Their arrests capped a two-year probe into by the federal Drug Enforcement Agency and the city Department of Investigation, with DOI Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn noting that they bring the number of Department of Corrections employees busted on contraband charges in the past decade to 30.

Romain and Phillips were being held overnight pending court appearances today.

If convicted, each faces up to 10 years in the slammer.

I guess these ninjas thought they were officer Ricky Rozay and by dealing drugs their rap career would blow up too….not.
