Man Arrested For Posing As Police Officer

A northern Kentucky man faces charges after police say he posed as an officer to steal money.

Investigators say 23-year-old Michael Bowlin, of Florence, asked the victim for a ride in downtown Cincinnati.

Once inside the car, Bowlin allegedly told the man he was an undercover cop and told him he was being charged, for solicitation.

Police say Bowlin told the victim he could pay a $350 fine on the spot. Police say Bowlin later demanded more money. That's when he was arrested.
