A group of wannabe cops has been fooling police, firefighters, and the public for years across Genesee County in Michigan, according to law enforcement officials. Now they are facing felony charges.

The group is accused of conducting false arrests of individuals they accused of committing crimes and even tricking real emergency responders at crime scenes, reports Mlive.com.

“We believe that on some occasions, they were the first to show up on crime scenes,” said Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton. “On some occasions, the real police would ask them to perform tasks at the scene, not realizing they were imposters.”

A group of people calling themselves the Genesee County Fire and EMS Media-Genesee County Task Force Blight Agency has been acting as police at locations that include county parks, house fires, vehicle crashes and other crime scenes, according to Kevin Shanlian, chief of the Genesee County Parks ranger division.
