Denton police officers responded to a robbery call in the 2000 block of Teasley Lane shortly after midnight Thursday. A 21-year-old man told police that he had been robbed at gunpoint.

The suspects were not at the scene when police arrived, but descriptions were provided to the officers and dispatched.

According to a police report, officers believed the robbery was drug related.

The 21-year-old, a Lewisville resident, was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated. Reports stated that a suspect in the robbery was arrested in Roanoke on separate charges.

No injuries occurred during the incident, officials said.

According to police reports, an officer made contact with the driver of a vehicle in a motel parking lot in the early morning hours and saw an open bottle of alcohol in plain view on the front seat.

When a passenger in the car handed the bottle to the officer, the officer saw a digital scale box in the front passenger door panel, reports state.

A search of the vehicle uncovered a box containing methamphetamine and prescription pills, police said.
