Montana phony Coast Guardsman ID’d

| August 11, 2017 | 40 Comments

Green Thumb sends us a link to the Missoulian which reports that the Lake County Sheriff’s Department has identified the fellow who has been impersonating a Coast Guardsman in an effort, according to at least one report, to get free beer.

Ryan Lowden, 33, will be charged with three felony counts of Impersonating a Public Official when he appears in Lake County Justice Court on Aug. 16 for an initial appearance.

On Thursday, Aug. 10, Lake County Sheriff’s detectives conducted a search at Lowden’s residence. Coast Guard clothing, similar to what witnesses had reported him wearing, was located.

    Three felony counts.

    That’ll leave a mark.

    Yeah, when this was first ported the other day, their Facebook page said they know the identity of the individual but were still completing the investigation. For once Social Media was helpful in catching a crook.
    Way to go dickmuncher.
    You are actually *stupider* than you look.

    He’s sunk.

    Unlike DOD military personnel, USCG personnel have some law-enforcement powers and responsibilities when performing many of their duties. They should charge this guy with impersonating an LEO to make it even more serious…

      Which is probably why he got nailed with the felonies in the first place.

      One of my colleagues has lived an ummm exciting life. When he graduated from college he tells me that he thought about joining the Coast Guard and becoming an aviator. Since his degree is in physics and he had a very strong GPA, the CG recruiters were pretty excited. Then his records check came back… They way he tells the story is they asked him to come on down to the recruiting station, went over his records and then said, “Mike, you do know that the Coast Guard is a LAW ENFORCEMENT agency right…?”

      Sad to say, Mike now works for the state.

    Well, that escalated quickly…

    What, no mug shot yet? I need something for my dartboard, and so does Toasty Coastie.

  8. Green Thumb says:

    What a loser.

    He does get a “A” for originality.

    I hope that creativity works in front of the judge.

    pull that shit up in Montana and to me it’s a wonder he didn’t get his stupid little flesh pickle-tasting ass shot!

    Bet he comes back as a fake ice cream truck driver.

    Good-bye, Faker Coastie

    Gotta love that the Sheriff is also the Coroner.
    An average day in court….
    “No, your honor, no foul play suspected. Suspect died from four self inflicted gunshot wounds according to the Coroner’s report.”

    Before he gets sent to the can, take this pos out to the Oregon coast and strap him down to the bow of an mlb they have at the surf stations, and have the boat crew train in heavy weather.

  16. AnotherPat says:

    Based on some research on GOOGLE using his age and name, I THINK this guy’s real name is William Ryan Lowden and is a registered Sex Offender in Oregon and Montana.
