MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) - To officials in the town of Morrisville, there are more dangerous things in “Pokemon Go” than running into the villainous Team Rocket.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (https://bit.ly/2ahitq5) the Town of Morrisville released an advisory Wednesday asking residents to take care in their digital pursuits.

Chief Patrice Andrews said in an email that the department has seen an increase in people stopping their vehicles in the middle of some local streets to locate a Pokemon.

Morrisville’s advisory asks people not to park in fire lanes, trespass or stop in traffic while playing the game. The release was issued at the request of Andrews and the police department.

In Greenville, one “Pokemon Go” player was stabbed and another player was assaulted on Monday.
