Po­lice try to lure fugi­tives with help from Poke­mon Go

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Po­lice in New Hamp­shire’s largest city have got­ten the Poke­mon “Go” bug, try­ing to lure fugi­tives with the pop­u­lar app. A post on the Manch­ester Po­lice Depart­ment Face­book page an­nounces that po­lice re­cently de­tected one of the rarer Poke­mon char­ac­ters — a Charizard — in the book­ing area. The post invites those whose names ap­pear on a list linked to the post to be “one of the lucky ones” to come cap­ture the Charizard. The list in­cludes the names of the more than 500 fugi­tives on the depart­ment’s wanted per­sons roundup. Sgt. Eric Knight said Sun­day the post has yet to net an ar­rest.
