Man posed as cop to con bouncers.

A BLACK Country man who posed as a police officer to pocket over PS3,700 from a group of door supervisors by promising them he could get them on non-existent security courses has been put behind bars for 16 months.

Genghis Khan who was dressed in a West Midlands Police uniform when he walked round the streets of Wolverhampton also told the bouncers he could find them work in the security industry.

But the 33-year-old, who maintained he was stationed in Shrewsbury, was finally rumbled after he charged one man PS2,500 for a place on a fictitious security programme.

The father-of-two, of Elm Farm Road, Blakenhall, Wolverhampton, admitted six charges of fraud and another of impersonating a police officer.

Judge Nicholas Webb told him it was an extremely serious offence and the only appropriate sentence was immediate imprisonment.

Charnjit Jutla defending said Khan was full of remorse and was determined to pay back all the money he had taken from his victims.

The court was told Khan conned five door supervisors out of a total of PS1,260 by offering them security work at Birmingham Airport and one woman, who handed over PS350, even quit her job.
