Authorities say Morthland and Orme used a cellphone app with red-and-blue flashing light and siren to pose as police and stop motorists. The stops happened near Curran and Lick roads in western Sangamon County.
The charge of false impersonation of a peace officer is a class four felony. Both are in custody on $25,000 bond.
