Pokemon players are trespassing, risking arrest or worse

PHOENIX (AP) – The “Pokemon Go” craze in the U.S. has people wandering into yards, driveways, cemeteries and even an off-limits police parking lot in search of cartoon monsters.

Authorities and others are warning trespassers they could get arrested or worse – especially if they cross paths with an armed property owner.

Since the release of the smartphone game last week, police have gotten a flurry of calls from residents about possible burglars or other strangers in their neighborhood.

So far, few tickets have been issued, and there have been no reports of arrests or assaults on trespassers playing the game.
