Suspicious youths turn out to be looking for Pokemon

Pokemon Go arrives in Kimberley; police question youths

  • Jul. 21, 2016 6:00 a.m.

Pokemon Go is a world-wide craze and Kimberley is not exempt.

Kimberley RCMP received a call at 4:00 am about three suspicious youths.  Police attended and located the fourteen year old Pokemon Go Hunters!   They had not committed an offence and cooperated with police but the caller was concerned about what they may have been up to.

The situation certainly warranted a call and police were thankful that they were able to locate the young boys and clarify what they were up to.  Apparently they were headed home as their cell phones were dying.

The parents have been notified.
