SUNBURY – From fake federal officer to county lockup…A man has been arrested after impersonating as a federal agent. Northumberland County DA Tony Matulewicz tells us 56-year-old Michael Robinson, who has addresses in Shamokin and Bloomsburg, is charged with impersonating a public servant and other misdemeanor offenses.


The DA says his office recently received numerous complaints from local government agencies and citizens alleging Robinson identifying himself as a federal agent. He also served fictitious court documents on numerous individuals and agencies.
