Officials say a man allegedly stole a car while pretending to test drive it over Labor Day Weekend.

Sheriff Dave Lucas says 28-year-old Brian Bell of Morristown took a 2012 Chrysler 300 from Starr’s Used Cars in Barnesville.

Later, a Belmont County Sheriff’s deputy and a Bridgeport Police officer were following up a report of a sighting of the stolen vehicle in Bridgeport, when the car passed them in traffic!

Bell was arrested and jailed on charges of receiving stolen property and driving under suspension.
