Suspect Arrested Using a Police Station Pokestop

You just can’t make this stuff up sometimes. Police are reporting they have a criminal suspect arrested using a police station Pokestop, effectively turning himself in to police custody by accident.


A police station in Detroit happens to be a Pokestop for players of Pokemon Go, and reportedly sees many people arriving to collect goodies for the game. However, one visiting player just so happened to have a warrant out for his arrest in relation to a breaking and entering case. The man was immediately arrested by officers when they recognized him during his visit to the station, and has been charged with the crime. No further details about the 26-year-old suspect have been released at this time.

Way to go, buddy!
