Moundsville, West Virginia – 26-year-old police officer Benjamin Davis was recently forced to resign after a concerned mother exposed him as a child molester in her very own independent online sting operation.
Davis allegedly sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl, and when the girl’s mother found out about what happened, she created a fake online profile so she could gather proof.
In her profile, the mother posed as a 17-year-old girl and had the caption “cops rule” in the description of her main photo. The mother convinced Davis that she was an underage girl and that she was interested in developing a sexual relationship with him.
“She created this account, and basically Mr. Davis answered that, and she was posing as a 17-year-old female in the Marshall County area. They began chatting with each other and planned to meet at some point,” State Police Sgt. Mathew Adams told reporters.
When she had enough evidence on Davis, the woman reportedly revealed herself as the victim’s mother and told him, “your actions will make people trust cops even less.”
