Denton police arrested a 34-year-old man after locating prescription pills, mushrooms, cocaine, a pipe and two handguns in his vehicle late Thursday in the 2400 block of Loop 288, according to a police report.

A caller told police a truck was parked on the side of a building and had been there for about 10 minutes with the lights flickering on and off. When police arrived, they located one occupant.

The man told police he was there because he had an argument with his wife. While speaking to officers, he admitted he had two handguns in his vehicle and outstanding warrants from other agencies, the report says.

Police saw a prescription pill bottle in plain view and also located a pipe. Officers asked the man what he had smoked earlier, and the man said DMT — a hallucinogenic drug also known as Dimitri.

During a search, officers located everything the man said he had. He was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance. He also received a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon because he had firearms in arm’s reach while he was intoxicated.
