Distraught Pokemon Go player calls cops to report stolen pokemon

It’s an emergency – someone has stolen my Pokemon… theses are the words of a distraught Pokemon Go player who phoned cops in the UK to report the ‘serious crime’.

The extremely competitive Pokemon hunter, who was evidently upset at the betrayal of her fellow gamers, called Gloucestershire Police earlier this week.

“Someone has stolen my Pokemon!” the young woman can be heard saying to the emergency operator”.


“Right, so why is that a 999 call?” the operator says before informing the woman that she is stopping someone with a life and death emergency about a Pokemon.

According to local media, the woman was given a few ‘words of advice’ by authorities before she was largely criticised online by social media users.
