Budd Lake man growling at CVS employees, arrested for possession of Xanax

MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (Morris County) – A 26-year-old Budd Lake man is facing drug and other charges after allegedly causing a scene by growling at store employees.

On Tuesday, October 18 at 7:07 p.m., a township police officer responded to the CVS Pharmacy on route 46 for a report of a male creating a disturbance in the store, police said.

CVS employees advised the officer that there was an individual in the store who was growling at employees, police said.

The officer made contact with Cory A. Daoust and observed his clothes to be covered in dirt and pine needles, police said.

As the officer spoke with Daoust, he noted that he appeared to be impaired and then escorted him out of the store to the parking lot, where he was questioned further, police said.

Through the course of the investigation, Daoust was found to have in his possession a prescription bottle containing Xanax, and more Xanax pills were located in his pants pocket, police said.

Daoust was asked to perform field sobriety tests, and was subsequently placed under arrest. He was transported to police headquarters, where he submitted to chemical breath testing, police said.

Daoust was charged with possession of Xanax, under the influence of CDS, reckless driving, and driving while suspended. He was released to a sober driver pending a court hearing.
