Man Arrested Posing As Fireman -- Again

Recommended Posts

A man posing as a firefighter, wearing a stolen fireman's uniform, was arrested in Irving on Sunday just four months after he was arrested on similar charges in Plano.

Trrance King, 21, was arrested Sunday at an Irving hospital after he claimed to be a Denton firefighter, according to a law enforcement source. King was wearing a stolen Denton firemans shirt and carrying a stolen portable two-way radio.

Firefighters in Denton believe he stole the items when they allowed him to tag along with a fire crew one day last week after he told them he was a paramedic, said Denton Battalion Chief Brian Glenn.

The man said his name was Jayden Smith, Glenn said.

"He sounded like someone interested in a career with the fire service, Glenn said.

But firefighters grew suspicious of his credentials and later learned his name wasnt Jayden Smith and he was no paramedic.

"It didn't sink in until later that Jayden Smith is Will Smith's son, so he didn't even make up a good name, Glenn said. He just stole it."
