California police officer was arrested after a male college student used Snapchat’s “gender switch” to pretend to be a 16-year-old girl.
San Mateo police officer, Robert Davies was allegedly attempting to meet with an underage girl after a 20-year-old San Francisco Bay Area student, posed as a girl named Esther on Tinder after using Snapchat’s filter.
“I was just looking to get someone,” Ethan said. “He just happened to be a cop.”
I believe he messaged me, ‘Are you down to have some fun tonight?’ and I decided to take advantage of it.”
Davies, who was recently recognized for his police leadership, has been placed on paid administrative leave. He faces a charge of contacting a minor to commit a felony.
