The excitement surrounding Pokémon Go is causing problems for some homeowners as players eager to catch Pokemon trespass onto private property. Police in multiple states have issued warnings to Pokémon Go users to stay away from private and public spaces that they don’t have permission to access.
The New York Police Department sent out a notice that not only warned users not to trespass onto private property, but also to refrain from playing the game while driving or biking.
