Montgomery County police officers staged a fake raid in Northwest D.C., complete with guns drawn and police lights blazing, sparking outrage from local residents who were not warned that the cops were acting for a TV show.

About a half dozen off-duty officers, who wore county uniforms and drove county police cars, were hired by a local production company to stage a police raid on 315 Aspen St. NW, which is about a quarter of a mile from the Montgomery-D.C. border.

“If the D.C. police had been in Montgomery County, that’s all [anyone] would have talked about,” said an irate Kelly Craven, who lives a few houses down from the raided house.

The filming was for a show called “Prison Wives,” which is about women who fall in love with and marry prisoners, according to neighbors. The show is in development for the cable channel Investigation Discovery, according to its Web site.

Filming went on for half a day and looked like the real thing, neighbors said.

“They stormed the house like a SWAT team and they said, ‘Police, search warrant, open up,’” said James Hall, who lives next door and shares a driveway with the house that was used in the filming.
