A Midland man is behind bars after pretending to be a police officer.

According to the arrest report, 55-year-old Cornelius Bible pulled up next to a teen who was walking on West Kentucky.

He confronted her about being a runaway and told her he was “an undercover cop.”

He then told the girl to get in the car and she did.

Police say the teen got scared, jumped out of the car and ran to a nearby house.

Officers spotted a car at a home that matched the description given by the girl.

Investigators were able to connect the car to Bible based on his sex offender registration.
