Attention Pokémon Chasers: Police, Fire Officials Want You To Stop Calling 911

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — If you’re chasing Pokémon, Southland authorities want you to know they’re not playing around.

Fire officials say they’ve seen a steady flow of calls to 911 by Pokémon Go players claiming there are Pikachu inside fire stations and requesting access to go inside those stations.

While the total number of calls was not immediately determined, an Los Angeles County Fire spokesperson says enough is enough.

Police in Covina also reported receiving inquiries from Pokémon players about accessing local jails.

The inquiries come in the wake of a Pokémon Go player who was stabbed multiple times by attackers at an Anaheim park Wednesday. Police say there was no evidence the player was lured to the park.
