Comments () A Text Size

Denton police recovered a stolen laptop belonging to a governmental agency after a routine traffic stop, police said.

The traffic stop, which occurred at Bernard and Wil­lowwood streets, led to the discovery of multiple warrants on the 38-year-old suspect.

During the arrest, a vehicle search led police to uncover the stolen laptop, according to the report.

The suspect told police the laptop belonged to another person. A second person, police said, alleged the computer was his and he obtained it as payment for work done on a vehicle.  Denton police said the second person was not arrested at the scene pending investigation.
