The police have given you correct information about the registartion of the car-this does not give you ownership. But since the registration is in your name there is a risk you may get parking or speeding tickets, which will cause some bother. So i suggest cancel the registration and report it stolen. The oral agreement to put the car in your name is ***** ***** to prove ownership you would need him to confirm the sale. The police should however have accepted the report as stolen and you should insist.
