Pair Jumped Fence At Zoo, Wanted To Catch Pokemon: Police

Not the kind of catch they were hoping for.

Police in Ohio say that a pair of ambitious gamers hopped a fence at the Toledo Zoo early Thursday to play Pokemon Go, according to WTOL.

Authorities caught up with Robin Bartholomy, 25, and Adrian Crawford, 26, near the tiger exhibit.

The news outlet also pointed out a foreshadowing status on Bartholomy’s Facebook page:
