A Greenup County man and his wife were arrested Friday for allegedly going to an elementary school and attempting to obtain a urine specimen from a nephew for use in a drug test.

Nick Kintigos, 37, and his wife, Teresa, 38, both were lodged in the Greenup County Detention Center on charges that included criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct and attempted identity theft.

The charges stem from events that occurred Thursday at Argillite Elementary School, said Scott Brown, communications supervisor with Greenup County 911.

According to Brown, the couple allegedly went to the school with the intent of getting a urine sample from a nephew who was a student there. The couple allegedly wanted the urine for Nick Kintigos to use in a drug test at his place of employment, Brown said. He said didn’t know where Nick Kintigos worked or what his job was.

Nick Kintigos allegedly took the boy into a restroom at the school, but the youngster was unable to produce any urine, Brown said.

While Kintigos was trying to obtain the specimen, two other boys walked into the restroom, and Kintigos allegedly asked them for urine, Brown said. The boys exited the restroom and told a teacher what had taken place, he said.

The 911 center received a report from the school about 12:30 p.m., Brown said. The caller reported that there was “a male adult in the boys’ restroom without permission,” he said.

The couple left the school prior to authorities’ arrival. They were arrested Friday morning at their home by Greenup County sheriff’s deputies, Brown said.

Nick and Teresa Kintigos were both charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of criminal trespass, Brown said. Nick Kintigos also was charged with criminal attempt to commit identity theft; his wife with facilitation to that crime.

The Kintigoses both remained in custody Friday evening. A deputy jailer said the couple was being interviewed by a pre-trial officer and that their bonds had not yet been established.
