There can’t be any doubts now of Pokémon Go’s world domination even the police are getting in on the action, The Guardian reports. A police station in Virginia is using its Facebook page to invite “random citizens” to try and catch a super-rare Pokémon in their processing room. No one has caught Ditto in the game, but that’s not what the police are hoping get caught. Their “random citizens” all have outstanding warrants .

The administrator of Smithfield Police Department’s page, Sgt. Bryan Miller, told The Virginian Pilot he decided to make a list of eight people with outstanding warrants a little more exciting. “I have a sense of humor,” he said. “I had no idea it was going to be this big.” He added he wasn’t expecting anyone to actually turn up.
