Pokemon Go enthusiasts in New Zealand caught a thief who tried to break into a car, Reuters reports.
The players were trying to catch them all in the North Island town of Napier when they noticed a car alarm go off and a masked man run past them. The group grabbed the man and held him until the proper authorities arrived.
"They didn't use Pokeballs to catch him, they just held him till police arrived," said the police statement.
Napier police also reminded players to stay safe when playing the game.
"Capturing little Pokemon monsters isn't just good for the players because in this case it's good for the police too, but we don't want any good Samaritans to get hurt."
The thief in question is a 28-year-old man who will face theft charges.
