An Oklahoma City woman is facing charges of possession of a stolen vehicle after she told authorities a her date left her in the car to go get gas.
A Grady County Sheriff's Office Deputy was patrolling the Bridge Creek area when he observed a white pickup in the parking lot of the 4-Stop convenience store. The store was closed for business, according to an incident report.
Deputy Dan Filkins asked dispatch to run the tag, dispatch advised the vehicle had been stolen. Deputy Filkins approached the passenger, who was later identified as Darci Bryson. Bryson allegedly identified herself under a different name. Bryson told the deputy she was on a first date with a man named Cody Frost when the pickup ran out of gas, the report said. Bryson allegedly did not know the vehicle had been stolen and said she did not know Frost very well.
Bryson said Frost was about six feet tall, wearing blue jeans, a red flannel shirt and a black beanie cap. Bryson said Frost had walked north on State Highway 4 to get gas for the vehicle, but that he had been gone for over an hour and wasn't answering his phone, according to the report. Deputy Filkins requested the Tuttle Police Department to help locate Frost, but they could not locate the man.
During an impound inventory, Deputy Filkins located a Coach purse and a Michael Kors wallet in the backseat of the truck containing credit cards with various names as well as an EBT card with the name Darci Bryson. Bryson allegedly said the purse and wallet did not belong to her. She was placed into custody and transported to the Grady County Jail.
Jail staff discovered a photo I.D. on Bryson's person also with the name Darci Bryson and matching her description. Bryson then admitted she had given a different name because she thought she might have a warrant, the report said. Jail staff also located a key and key fob on Bryson's person that was able to open and start the stolen pickup, the report said.
Bryson faces an additional charge of false personation.
