Man Arrested for Posing as a CIA Agent

A man was picked up for impersonating a CIA agent, amongst other charges, at Houlihan's on Route 1 last Friday.

David Ritardi, 34, of Trenton, was charged with weapons offenses, fraudulent documents, impersonating a police officer or agent, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

Sgt. Chris Longo received information that Ritardi was allegedly using fraudulent documentation to pose as a CIA operative. Longo confirmed with the federal government that Ritardi was not an employee of the CIA, according to Detective Sgt. Joe Amodio.

Ritardi was also in possession of a bb gun styled to look like a black handgun and prescription pills without documentation, although he was not suspected of attempting to distribute, according to Amodio.

Officer Andrew Lee and Detective James Smith also handled the case.

Ritardi posted bail and was released from custody the following day.
