Sheriff’s dept: Jail not the best place for Pokemon

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — Trainers hunting for different Pokemon characters have been warned: Stay away from the Bristol County House of Corrections in North Dartmouth.

The Bristol County Sheriff’s Department on its Facebook page told players under no circumstances will they be admitted to catch Pokemon Go critters, writing:

Dear Pokémon Go: Right outside the jail fence is not the best place for a Pokemon. Sincerely, the Bristol County Sheriff’s Department. PS: Reminder to the public, this is a secure facility and no one will be admitted to catch Pokemon. No one.

That’s bad news for players, since a later post revealed Pikachu has been spotted in an outdoor staff break area at the facility.

The sheriff’s department is one of the latest law enforcement agency commenting on the app – which has taken the world by storm in just a matter of days.

The Cranston Police Department also sent out notice on its Facebook page Tuesday, urging residents not to game while driving and to respect private property.
