Pokemon GO is a very popular game, but is also extremely dangerous for different users, US police received complaints from some users who were mugged by thieves who have used the app to lure victims in locations where they they’ve threatened with guns to steal valuables.
Missouri is the state in which there were these robbers who in middle game Pokemon GO, thieves managed to convince victims that are looking for Pokemon, when in reality they were waiting in various locations to steal mobile phones, money and other valuables they had on them at the time.
US police managed to arrest four suspects for these robberies and it looks like they used a beacon to create a so-called Pokéstop in the game, it showing the existence of a pokemon important in the location where they sat, not less 11 people being robbed by this method by thieves.
Of course people robbed were between 16 and 18 years, being from St. St. Louis Charles, and if the police had not intervened, then surely the death toll would have been much higher, and the situation could have been tragic, with some people killed in refusing to hand over the goods.
This morning at approximately 2 am we responded to the report of an Armed Robbery near the intersection of Highway K and Feise Road. We were able to locate four suspects occupying a black BMW a short time later and recover a handgun. These suspects are suspected of multiple Armed Robberies both in St. Louis and St. Charles Counties. It is believed these suspects targeted their victims through the Pokemon Go smart phone application.
I told Tuesday that two YouTuber were to be shot using Pokemon GO, while another person has found a corpse, the game putting users in situations very unusual, and this seems to attract the most people eager for adventure under this title.
