Police: Man Posed As U.S. Marshal To Get Discounted Doughnuts

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (UPI) — Police in Florida said they arrested a man accused of posing as a U.S. Marshal to get a discount at a Dunkin’ Donuts.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Douglas Tobin said a suspicious store clerk at the Dunkin’ Donuts in New Port Richey alerted the office to a man who frequented the eatery and used a badge to support his claim of being a U.S. marshal to get discounts on doughnuts, ABC News reported Thursday.

“Yesterday, we had an undercover deputy in the store,” Tobin said. “He usually comes in at the same time. This time, he didn’t show his badge, but we had enough reason to arrest him.”

The man, Charles Barry, 48, was found to have a .38-caliber revolver in his pocket Tuesday and ammunition in his vehicle, Tobin said.

Barry, who investigators said used his late father’s New Jersey police badge for his Dunkin’ Donuts ruse, was arrested Tuesday on charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer and improper exhibition of a firearm or dangerous weapon. He was released after posting $5,150 bail.
