TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say they arrested six teens accused of posing as Temecula police officers and ordering people out of their cars by using megaphones and high-powered flashlights to obscure their real identity.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department says 18-year-old Mason Gonzalez of Temecula has been arrested as well as three girls and two boys. Authorities said they first received reports of the alleged pranks on Dec. 23.

After getting out of their cars, victims were ordered to lie face down on the pavement. Authorities say the teens then drove away.

There were no attempts to harm or rob any of the victims during the incidents.

There was no phone listing for Gonzalez and he couldn't immediately be reached.
