Teens Face Felony Charges; Used Cell Phone App To Impersonate Cops

Sangamon County authorities say two teens used a cell phone app to simulate flashing lights that allowed them to pull over one or more drivers earlier this week.  And as a result, the two are now facing felony charges for posing as police officers. 


19-year-old Thomas Orme and 17-year-old Christopher Morthland of Chatham were jailed on $25,000 bond each.  They are each facing one count of false impersonation of a peace officer, a Class 4 felony, for an incident early Monday involving a 79-year-old motorist. 


Undersheriff Jack Campbell says the two admitted using the flashing light app to pull over two other cars and a pedestrian Monday morning.  But none of those victims have yet come forward, and so no charges can be filed in those cases unless someone files a complaint.
