Pokemon Go player trying catch 'em all, caught by police

A man playing Pokemon Go was arrested in what the chief of Milford Police is calling one of the 'funniest cases' he's ever seen.

Surely by now, you know about Pokemon Go. The smartphone phenomenon has seemingly taken the world by the storm and gotten people up off the couch, trying to catch Pokemon on your phone. But a man trying to catch em all, gets caught himself.

Chief Thomas Lindberg said the man made it easy - he just showed up.

"He made our job much easier for us that day," Lindberg said.

The police department knows all about the game. Due to its popularity, detectives were assigned to learn everything they could about it and they even have a character by the flag pole.

They probably never would have guessed the Pokemon would have lured a criminal to their front door. But that's exactly what happened when one of the officers happened to look outside and see a man wandering around in pajamas.

That man was William Wilcox and, yes, he was wearing PJs and searching for Pokemon at 10:30 at night.

Wilcox is a repeat offender with a warrant out for his arrest. He was right in front of the men who would take him into custody.

"It was a misdemeanor warrant for a failure to appear on a breaking and entering charge," Lindberg said. "They approached him. Took him in custody without incident and he admitted he was trying to catch the character at the flagpole."

He was arraigned and then sent home on a personal bond where he can continue to play Pokemon Go before his next day in court.
