A probationary Corrections Officer who has been having steamy s*x with a convicted inmate in order to give him drugs has been finally nabbed.
A female Rikers Island guard was busted for giving drugs to an inmate in exchange for sex — after a law-enforcement pooch sounded the alarm, smelling pot on the employee when she showed up to work, authorities said Sunday.
Gunner the dog was working an early-morning shift Saturday in front of the George R. Vierno Center on Rikers Island when he allegedly smelled trouble on probationary Corrections Officer Nicole Bartley.
Bartley, reporting for a 5 a.m. shift change, had no contraband on her, but Gunnar still picked up the drug’s scent, officials said. Investigators searching her house later found a package of weed, which they determined to be for an inmate she was having sex with, they said.
The nearly 70 gram package was confiscated, and Bartley was collared on charges of rape in the third degree, sexual misconduct, official misconduct, promoting prison contraband, and criminal possession of marijuana in the fourth degree, authorities said.
Bartley was Gunner’s second bust at Rikers this week. The chocolate Labrador helped nab Officer Mohammed Sufian on Wednesday, after he sniffed out synthetic marijuana stashed in the man’s sock, authorities said.
“Such corrupt and indecent actions contribute to the troubling conditions on Rikers Island, and undermine safety and security there,” Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said in a statement.
Bartley, who has worked at Rikers since May 2014, faces up to four years in prison on the top charge.
The New York City Department of Investigation Commissioner Mark Peters said her arrest marks the 26th Corrections employee nabbed since the DOI began probing corruption at Rikers in 2014.
