LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A shoplifting suspect in Southern Kentucky is facing even more charges after police said he ordered pizza to the police station as a prank.

The incident occurred in Corbin, Kentucky.

Police arrested 29-year-old Michael Harp on Tuesday afternoon for shoplifting and public intoxication.

Police said while being booked at the jail, Harp asked to make a call on his cell phone.

A short time later, Domino's delivered five pizzas to the police station under the name of Officer Wilson, who was Harp's arresting officer.

Police were able to link Harp to the call by using his cell phone number.

He now faces new charges of identity theft, theft by deception and impersonating a police officer.
