TRINITY, Florida – Pasco County Sheriff Deputies arrested a man last week after he allegedly attempted a daring heist. Deputies say 48-year-old Charles “Chuck” Barry went to the drive-thru of a Trinity Dunkin’ Donuts, identified himself as law enforcement and then proceeded to demand a discount for donuts.

Smelling a rat, the clerk refused, drawing ire from the hungry impersonator who allegedly held up a gun — still in its holster — and said, “See, I’m a cop!”

Strangely enough, Barry returned the next day to the drive-thru where the manager took down his license plate tag.

On November 12, surveillance was set up at Dunkin Donuts in a risky sting operation.  A Deputy with the Pasco Sheriff’s Officer saw Barry driving away from the business. This resulted in a traffic stop where the deputy noted a law enforcement badge in Barry’s wallet. He was also carrying a .38 caliber revolver in his front pocket.

After being identified by the vigilant crew of Dunkin Donuts, Barry was arrested and charged with one count of False Impersonation of a law Enforcement Officer and Improper Exhibition of a Firearm.
