A Spanish police officer has been arrested after posing as a spy chief and trying to "recruit" women to his agency asking them to undergo tests that included having sex with him.
The 56-year old man, an officer with the local police force in Xativa, in the Valencia region dazzled potential "recruits" with an array of spy equipment bought in a shop, fake guns and military training videos to convince them of his credentials.
He targeted single and divorced women and persuaded them to perform sex acts on him claiming they had to prove they were capable of doing anything in the line of duty.
He also gave them fake assignments that included delivering their jewellery, gold and cash to him in "secret handovers". His victims never saw their valuables again.
