Officers on Friday arrested a man accussed of posing as a bounty hunter, according to Vineland police.
An anonymous tip placed Edward D. Collins at Eighth and Pine streets in Millville. Vineland and Millville police approached a vehicle that Collins was a passenger in. Police said Collins fled but after a short chase was caught around 11th and Mulberry streets.
He will be processed and placed in the Cumberland County jail. His bail is set at $300,000.
