Alleged burglar uses 'Pokémon Go' as excuse, police are not impressed

LONDON — There are many things in this world that Pokémon Go is good for, but evading the police is not one of them.

Since the wildly popular app was released a couple of weeks ago there have been reports of teenagers finding dead bodies while Pokémon hunting and robbers specifically targeting players, but there haven't been many examples of people using the game to try and dodge the law.

The update, which has been shared over 7,000 times at the time of writing, went down well on Twitter.

Yep, this definitely has Team Rocket written all over it.
