TULSA, Okla. (TCD) — One woman’s “birthday present” wasn’t wrapped in a bow and ended up causing her arrest rather than a celebration.

The Tulsa Police Department said in a statement that its Real Time Information Center got an alert from a camera system on April 1 at 3:55 p.m. about a stolen Jeep Liberty driving in the area. The information center kept tabs on the Jeep until officers could conduct a traffic stop.

According to police, the driver, Angela Harrison, allegedly said she was at a gas station about an hour before getting pulled over and had run into a customer she knew from working at a Waffle House. She claimed the acquaintance handed her $10 and the keys to the Jeep Liberty in honor of her upcoming 53rd birthday.

The Jeep had reportedly been stolen before Christmas, and police also had a photo of Harrison in the car from January. Tulsa Police said Harrison confirmed she was the woman in the picture, but she “could not explain how she could have been in possession of the vehicle in January when she claimed it was gifted to her only an hour before.”

The Jeep’s owner died last year, but police returned the car to his family.

Harrison was arrested on a charge of possession of a stolen vehicle.

  1. It’s unbelievable how some people try to justify their actions with the most absurd stories. Poor decisions lead to consequences, no matter the excuse!

  2. It’s unbelievable how someone could think driving a stolen car is a valid birthday gift! Angela Harrison’s excuse just doesn’t add up. Justice served with her arrest.
