Flora PD warns against dangers of new Pokemon Go game

FLORA — The Flora Police Department is warning “Pokemon Go” players of possible dangers involved in the game.

The playing of this new game involves traveling about in the “real world” while looking at your mobile electronic device.

This has led to some accidents as distracted game-players have tripped, fallen, or walked into traffic, buildings, signs or other objects without looking.

It has also led game-players to wander around or loiter near businesses and stranger’s homes, resulting in calls to the police for suspicious activity.

Please be careful anytime you’re looking at your mobile device while in motion, and be mindful of private property when playing this or other similar games.
