Attempts to give police a fake name backfired on a Jersey City man.
Police stopped Tyrin Conyers because they say he matched a description of a burglary suspect.
When they ran the false name that the 23-year-old gave them, they discovered there was an arrest warrant out for that person.
Capt. Walter Rogers tells The Jersey Journal that Conyers then admitted lying about the name.
Conyers was charged with two burglaries, including the home of a police officer, after his fingerprints matched those found at the crime scenes.
It's not clear if he has retained a lawyer.
