A few Pokémon Go enthusiasts in Napier, New Zealand reportedly caught more than just Zubats on Wednesday night.
The players were searching for Pokémon when they heard a car alarm go off and saw a masked man run past them, according to Reuters. They then grabbed the alleged thief and prevented him from getting away.
“They didn’t use Pokéballs to catch him, they just held him till police arrived,” police said in a statement, referring to the tool used to capture the Pokémons through the augmented-reality mobile game.
The 28-year-old suspected thief is expected to face theft charges on Sept.
