A 24-year-old Pawtucket man was found with approximately six grams of cocaine on him Sunday after police confronted in him at the South Attleboro Days Inn.

Joshua Chattelle of Pawtucket was arrested and charged with possession of a Class B controlled substance (cocaine) with intent to distribute, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, according to Attleboro Police Det. Sgt. Arthur Brillon.

Brillon said Chattelle was first approached by Sgt. Timothy Cook and Ptlm. John Hynes of Attleboro's Problem Oriented Policing Unit because he was parked in the Days Inn handicap space without meeting the proper criteria.

When officers spoke to Chatelle, a "strong odor of burned marijuana" could be detected and Chatelle indicated he had recently smoked, Brillon said. A subsequent search of the vehicle found a plastic bag, filled with 10 smaller bags filled with a white substance later identified as cocaine.

Police also found $601 in cash inside Chatelle's vehicle, Brillon said.

So now we have to pay for his incarceration? Send him back to Rhode Island!
