SEATTLE — A man accused of impersonating police officers to commit a series of robberies in Seattle parks has been arrested.
Police say Ryan James Purdy, 46, was arrested Wednesday in Auburn after he bragged to another bus passenger that he was wanted for impersonating a cop. The other passenger got off the bus and called police.
Seattle police have been looking for Purdy since December. They say he used a fake badge to check people’s identification and would steal credit cards.
