An Illinois man complained to local police nearly two weeks ago that two people impersonating FBI agents came into his South Elgin home and examined the contents of his computer.

Now the homeowner, L. John Toth, 51, has been charged with making a false police report, The Courier-News reports.

Turns out, those people were not scammers; they were real FBI agents investigating Toth for possessing child pornography, The Courier-News reported.

“The alleged offender failed to notify the police that he actually knew that the two subjects were actual agents and failed to notify police of specific incidences with the reason the agents were there,” said a statement from South Elgin police.

 A 20-year-old Louisiana woman who claimed she was set on fire by racists who scrawled KKK and a racial slur on her car made up the incident, state police said Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.

Police said forensic evidence shows Sharmeka Moffitt set herself on fire on Sunday and invented the story of a hate crime, which the FBI was investigating.

Moffitt received extensive burns on more than half her body, according to the Daily News.

“The evidence does not support the statement that she was attacked by three males,” said Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Lt. Julie Lewis.

The woman’s fingerprints were found on a lighter and lighter fluid, police said.

Local police will decide whether to charge Moffitt.
