Authorities said, 29-year-old Michael Ryan Wright, who works for a local car dealership, called a customer and told them to return a newly purchased car.

Wright said he was an Oklahoma City Police officer and requested the customer get in contact with him in a 24-hour period or the car would be reported as stolen. 

Authorities said that it was all a ploy to cover up a paperwork error.
