Thursday in court, a detective from the Special Investigation Unit within the Virginia Beach Police Department said he, along with another detective, went undercover and began texting and calling Cuffee.  The two pretended to be a 17-year-old girl inquiring about a "modeling" ad that detectives believed to hint at illegal sexual activity involving minors.

Through court documents obtained by News 3, records state there is evidence that Cuffee asked a minor to "perform porn."
