Cop impersonator jailed for child porn

OREM, Utah — A man impersonating a police officer lured young girls into his home to video tape them while using his bathroom, according to police.
David Morris Richards was arrested and sent to jail after a neighbor’s friend — who is associated with Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) — alerted police to suspicious activity, ABC 4 reported.
Richards had been friendly with neighbors in the area, and police say many believed he was a Utah Highway Patrol Trooper.
The mother of one of the victims told police she thought Richards was a real police officer, and a teen boy who sometimes did homework at Richards’ house said Richards showed him a badge.
Police say four victims, whose names have not been released, have come forward, and there could be more.
