Police say pair jumped Ohio zoo fence to play "Pokemon Go"

According to court documents, a Toledo couple was found trespassing inside the Toledo Zoo around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, WNWO reports.

The zoo is a veritable treasure trove for players of Pokemon Go, as the game uses defined landmarks and various terrain to spawn the creatures in the real world.

Police say two people in OH have been arrested while playing "Pokemon Go" after they climbed over a fence at the Toledo Zoo.

Just days before the occurrence, Bartholomy made a Facebook post saying she's "not above breaking and entering for a Pokemon".

Robin Bartholomy, 25, and Adrian Crawford, 26, both of Toledo are charged with criminal trespassing.

The Facebook account is no longer listed in the social media platform's public search. They were spotted on a zoo security camera and were walking through the zoo when they were caught.

Moriarty told the Toledo Blade the zoo welcomes Pokemon Go players - at the appropriate time. "Just do it in a safe and conscious way".

Bartholomy and Crawford are scheduled for an arraignment later on Friday.
