Want To Impersonate A Cop? There's An App For That
Two Chatham teens are in custody for allegedly impersonating police earlier this week.
Sangamon County deputies arrested Thomas Orme and Christopher Morthland about 4:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
In a news release Friday morning, Undersheriff Jack Campbell says Orme and Morthland are suspected of having used a cellphone app that mimics flashing police lights and sirens to pull over several drivers near Curran.
Chatham Police helped deputies identify the teens.
The two are being held on bond in Sangamon County Jail. Impersonation of a police officer is a Class 4 Felony.
