First things First: Hallo #TeamGelb! 🖖
Police in New Hampshire’s largest city are using Pokémon Go in an attempt to lure fugitives into their clutches.
A post on the Manchester police department Facebook page announced that officers recently detected one of the more rare Pokemon characters – a Charizard – in the booking area of police headquarters.
The post invited those whose names appeared on a list linked to the post to be “one of the lucky ones” to come and capture the creature. The list included the names of the more than 500 fugitives on the department’s wanted persons roundup. […] Sgt Eric Knight said on Sunday that the Pokémon post had yet to lead to an arrest.
Nathan Cerda, from Palmview, Texas, thought it’d be funny to threaten Pokémon Go players in his town with a “purge”. He is not laughing now.
Cerda made the following post to his Facebook page last week, in which he says he’s going to take some “modified paintball guns” out with some friends:
The post was reported to local police, who said that “due to the credibility of the threat and in the interest of public safety”, a warrant was issued on a charge of “terroristic threat”. Cerda was then arrested at his home in Palmview.
Two teenagers out playing Pokemon Go early Saturday morning were shot at by a man who apparently thought the teens posed a threat, said the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.
Die Server am Wochenende waren gefühlt 90% der Zeit down und offenbar gab es eine DDoS-Attacke: Hacking group claims responsibility for taking down servers 'with DDOS attack', OurMine claims credit for attack on Pokemon Go servers.
