CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - Corbin police say they got a surprise delivery after charging a southern Kentucky man with shoplifting - five pizzas showed up at the station door.

Officers say Michael Harp, 29, asked to make a call on his cellphone Tuesday afternoon while being booked. A short time later, police say, a Domino's delivery driver showed up to deliver to "Officer Wilson," the name of the officer who arrested Harp.

Police say they linked the call to Harp by tracking his cellphone number. Harp told WKYT-TV in Lexington it's all a misunderstanding and that "about 10 people" used his phone.

Harp now faces additional charges including theft of identity, theft by deception, and impersonating a police officer.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Harp.
