Travis sold heroin to two police informants on three separate occasions. On each occasion, the informants were searched, as were their vehicles, and provided with audio transmitters and buy money. They then surrendered the heroin to police at a designated meeting spot after each buy.

A review of Travis’ criminal history shows prior convictions for theft, disorderly conduct, and third-degree possession of three grams or more of heroin, for which he is currently serving 20 years of probation.
