ATCHISON COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities are investigating a suspect on multiple allegations.

On the afternoon of September 1, 2023 officers responded to an accident in the 800 block South 5th Street in Atchison where a Dodge Charger passenger car driven by 22-year-old Quinn Gamino of Horton had struck a parked vehicle, according to police Chief Mike Wilson.

While officers were investigating the traffic accident they discovered controlled substances that included hundreds of pills, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

A subsequent lab analysis of the seized pills determined the presence of fentanyl and para-fluorofentanyl.

On May 16, Gamino turned himself in at the Atchison County Jail for a District Court warrant for possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and no valid driver’s license. He is no longer in custody.
