BETHANY, OK -- A Bethany man may face criminal charges after what police said was intended to be a practical joke.

Police said a man took his girlfriend's baby with him to a convenience store and called her saying his car was stolen with the 9-month-old inside while he was inside the store.

The woman called 911 and an Amber Alert was almost issued.

"Right now we are putting together a case and that case will be taken to the DA's office and presented next week. I would say there is a strong possiblity he will be facing a charge," said Bethany Police Captain J.D. Reid.

The man's name has not been released.
