Police approached a man at about 1 a.m. Sunday after a witness called police about a man who was breaking into cars. 

When officers spoke with the suspect, they found out he had been lying about his name, according to a Denton police report. With his correct name and date of birth, police discovered the man had a warrant for violating parole, issued by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Police conducted a search and found a needle and methamphetamine on the suspect's person, according to the report. The suspect was arrested on the warrant and on a possession of a controlled substance charge.
