Two brothers were hot on the trail of Pokémon Go, when they found a loaded handgun lying in a field in Hazel Dell, Washington, police say.
Unfortunately, that's when they had to stop playing Pokémon Go to call 911. Deputies arrived and recovered the weapon, a rusty Smith and Wesson Model 16-4 .32 Magnum.
"It might've led to a tragic incident, if it weren't for the Pokémon searchers," says Deputy Brian Wade.
The game has also assisted police, making Pokémon Go players into amateur sleuths. In Wyoming, a 19-year-old woman found a dead body in a river while playing the game.
