Halloween is long over, but apparently fake police badges and body armor are still on the loose.

After spotting a wanted felon driving around north Seattle, SPD Anti-Crime Team officers pulled over the 48-year-old man, who is wanted for a burglary warrant on January 7, according to the SPD Blotter.

Following the arrest, police officers discovered the wanted burglar had a suspended license and was driving a car that belonged to someone else. The registered owner had apparently put the car up for sale and loaned it to the wanted felon for a test drive.

After receiving permission from the vehicle's owner, the police found another little surprise-- a car full of guns, a fake badge, body armor emblazoned with the word "sheriff" and $10,000 in cash. Although police have yet to link the 48-year-old man to cases of police impersonation, it doesn't seem like the suspect was up to much good.

At the King County Jail, police found 6 grams of suspected heroin and 4 grams of suspected methamphetamine in the man's underwear.
