Police: Man With Stolen Cop’s Badge Demands Discounted Spray Tan

JENKS, Okla. (CBS Houston) – Police arrested a man after they say he wore a stolen police officer’s badge to demand a discounted spray tan from a tanning salon.

With the badge pinned on his sweater, Dustin Lee Bell, demanded that he only be charged $10 for a $34 spray tan at a tanning salon, KOTV reported.

The manager went to call police and when he returned he noticed that a bottle of tanning lotion was missing from behind the counter, he explained in a statement to police.

The 25-year-old man claimed that he found the police badge at a car wash in South Tulsa, but police said it belonged to a Sand Springs officer after they called dispatch to confirm it was stolen.

Police arrested Bell and while booking him into jail, they found a Sam’s Club card belonging to the Sand Springs officer in his wallet.

Bell is facing charges of false impersonation of a police officer, larceny from a retailer and stolen property.
