HOUSTON – A man may face charges after he allegedly lied to police about a stolen vehicle Thursday in northeast Houston.

Police said they received a call about a stolen white Chevrolet containing an 8-month-old child in the 8600 block of Mesa Drive around 1 p.m.

Authorities said the caller later admitted he made up the story so officers would respond sooner to the scene.

The call originated from a dispute between the caller and another man.
