Porn-Wielding Cop Impersonator Arrested In Auburn

Police have arrested a man who used a fake badge and a box of porn to commit a series of robberies in Seattle parks.

Police have been searching for 46-year-old Ryan James Purdy since December, and finally caught up with him yesterday after he bragged to bus passenger about his life on the lam.

Purdy was riding a bus in Auburn Wednesday when he began chatting up a fellow passenger and mentioned he was wanted by police for impersonating a cop.

The passenger got off the bus and called the real police.

When Auburn police officers arrived, Purdy continued his streak of impersonation, giving officers a fake name in an attempt to convince them he was someone other than a wanted man. It didn’t work, and Auburn police booked Purdy into jail.
