Police cruisers keyed at Montgomery, Ala. bar

MONTGOMERY, ALA. — A suspect chose the wrong cars to key on Sunday, but it was no accident: The two police cruisers were clearly marked.

Leonard Purley, 24, of Albuquerque, was arrested Sunday and charged with criminal property damage. He allegedly took a key to the paint jobs of the two cruisers, which were parked outside Graham Central Station on Montgomery NE near San Mateo, according to a police report.

A security guard alerted officers, who were working overtime at the bar. The officers saw Purley walking away, and the security guard identified him as the man who had scratched the cars, according to the report.

One car had been scratched on the hood, and the other along the rear driver's side. According to the report, police estimate the damage will cost about $1,200 to repair.
