Why might someone whom we suspect stole a Duragesic (fentanyl) patch test very high for butalbital?

In brief: Taking both

If someone stole a narcotic patch, they may also have stolen barbiturates and take them, too.
The Duragesic (fentanyl) patch should not test positive for barbiturates, to my knowledge.
