BURRILLVILLE – A Smithfield man is facing three felony narcotics charges, and may face future charges for property stolen from CVS Pharmacy, after a patron at the Pascoag Cafe reported suspicious activity to police.

Travis Daubs, 26, of Mountain Dale Road, Smithfield was reportedly sitting in an red Acura outside the bar around 9 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5 with a female passenger. According to witnesses, the pair was parked in the lot for over an hour and they were seen sticking needles in their arms.

The car reportedly sped off when police arrived, but officers caught up with the vehicle traveling northbound on Spring Street.

Daubs, who according to reports showed physical characteristics consistent with heroin use,   was searched, and two clear plastic baggies fell out of his right pants pocket onto the ground.

“Mr. Daubs confirmed to officers that the two baggies once contained cocaine, but were now empty,” the report states.

When the passenger stood up, a hypodermic needle syringe reportedly fell from her waist area and onto the ground, and Daubs told police, “There is a crack pipe but I am not sure where it is.” A small plastic baggie then fell out from his left sock onto the ground, which contained a small amount of a white powdery substance, according to police.

A search of the vehicle uncovered a glass pipe containing a small amount of a white crystallized substance along with a push rod; multiple clear baggies, containing a white residue; and a metal pill container. The pill container held drugs labeled as Suboxone, Xanax and others.

All items were seized and transported to Burrillville Police Headquarters. Officers said the search of the car also lead to the discovery of a large quantity of presumably stolen property from CVS Pharmacy. The car was seized, “with anticipated legal service to follow.”

Daubs was charged with three counts of possession of a schedule I-V narcotic. He was held overnight to await transport to 6th District Court for his arraignment.
