SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A man known as “El Dentista,” who recently was sentenced for operated an unsanctioned mobile dentistry service in Santa Fe, has been charged with drug possession in jail.

Authorities recently caught Eliver Kestler with 20 strips of the narcotic Suboxone hidden inside his shoes at the Santa Fe County Jail.

Authorities say Kestler claims he was holding it for another inmate but refused give the inmate’s name.

Suboxone is a narcotic used to treat heroin addicts by suppressing withdrawal symptoms.

It was not known if Kestler had an attorney.

Kestler was sentenced to six years in prison last month.

Prosecutors say Kestler didn’t use gloves or anesthesia while working on patients and carried his tools in a dirty toolbox. Authorities say he preyed on immigrants.
