Ever since the app “Pokémon Go” got released last week, many fans and users are leaving their homes and walking outside catching Pokémon with their phones. However, it can be dangerous walking with the app since it can take your attention away. Besides crossing the streets, draining batteries or driving with Go, the next dangerous activity is robbery.
Reported on Sunday, police officiers from O’Fallon, Missouri arrested four teenagers for armed robbery. The teenagers used a beacon to lure players and rob them. On Facebook, Police reports that the suspects used a handgun which was hidden in a BMW. According to authorities, the teenagers were the ages 16, 17, and 18 and they were charged for first-degree robbery and the fourth teenager is held in custody.
Pokémon Go users must be careful. Even though Team Rocket is not real but criminals are real. Be careful as you walk and observe your surroundings and don’t go alone.
Keep all eyes on your surroundings!!!
