A Lexington man is being charged with impersonating a police officer, but officials said he did so with the help of technology.

Investigators said twice in the past month, Raynel White used the names and pictures of a deputy and an officer to set up fake profiles on social networking site tag.com.

Officials said White would use the profiles to make indecent comments and advances towards different women on the site.

Police said someone on the site tipped them off.

White was brought into custody where he confessed, according to police documents.
