AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine’s capital city say they’re investigating after a bogus Facebook page resembling the department’s actual page posted several fake news stories.

The Augusta Police Department says in a release the fake page looks nearly identical to its real page.

Deputy Chief Jared Mills says it has posted several fabricated stories, including one about a mother killing her three kids and another about a family of five killed in a car crash.

Police are trying to get the fake page taken down. They say it has several less postings, likes, and activity.
