LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The owner of a Lubbock tanning salon that abruptly closed its doors last week is training for a new career.

NewsChannel 11 has confirmed that David Dyess, owner of Body Bronze, is enrolled in the Lubbock Police Academy. 

Last week, the Body Bronze store on 82nd Street closed its doors for good, without giving clients or their landlord any warning. 

Many members were upset by the news, especially those who had prepaid for services.

Scott Womack, with Coldwell Banker Commercial, said Dyess has at least three years left on his lease. 

Womack has not heard from Dyess, but has heard from his lawyer, Gwynn Martin. We tried reaching out Dyess' lawyer but did not hear back as of Monday night. 

However on Wednesday the law firm McWhorter, Cobb and Johnson LLP, representing Dyess Consultants, LLC, released the following statement regarding Dyess' situation: "The closing of the Body Bronze tanning salon is a personal business matter for Dyess Consultants, LLC.  The Lubbock Police Department has no knowledge or involvement regarding this business ceasing its business operations. For anyone to imply so is an unfair characterization and a disservice to the Lubbock Police Department and its personnel."
 
The statement also went on to say,"Dyess Consultants, LLC, has attempted to be equitable and fair with cessation of its business operations, including issuing of refunds to customers.  It is   unfortunate that the closing of the salon occurred not only for the customers of Body Bronze but also for Dyess Consultants, LLC.”

NewsChannel 11 also reached out to the Lubbock Police Department regarding the employment of Dyess. 

LPD said: The Lubbock Police Department has become aware that a Lubbock Police Department Academy recruit is potentially involved in a private civil matter regarding the closing of a local business (Body Bronze). At this time the situation appears to be only a private civil matter and does not appear to have any bearing on this recruit’s standing in the Academy, or his employment with the Lubbock Police Department. The Lubbock Police Department will revisit the situation for any bearing on the recruit’s status as necessary.
