The musician was performing with the London Philharmonic in Zaragoza, Spain on Wednesday, February 29m 2012, when someone posing as Bell did convince hotel clerks to hand him over the key. The thief then walked out with some cash, a laptop and numerous belongings including a watch worth an estimated $38,000 (£23,750).
The incident is currently under police investigation and Bell is fuming. He tells Tmz.com,
“I was amazed at how easy it was for this to occur.”
