A Utah man wanted for a string of crimes was arrested after stealing a donut from a 7-Eleven while dressed as a cop, police said.

Officers in Lehi ended up tracking down Daniel Mark Wright, 47, after getting a call from a convenience store clerk who said a man wearing a “sheriff’s deputy” jacket had stolen a donut earlier in the day and left in a white Ford truck.

After looking at the surveillance video, the cops tracked the truck down at a nearby motel, where the manager led them to Wright’s room.

“Officers knocked on the door and made contact with [Wright] as he opened the door and was asked to step outside. A female was also inside of the bedroom and was identified as Christian Olson. While the door was open, I observed the green Salt Lake County Sheriff’s jacket hanging in the entry-way closet,” a Lehi Police officer wrote in the arrest report, according to KUTV-TV.

Wright admitted he had been at the 7-Eleven, but refused to answer any questions about the truck, which officers determined was stolen. Police arrested Wright for impersonating an officer, receiving a stolen vehicle, and theft. Olson was arrested for receiving a stolen vehicle.
