HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A “Pokemon Go” player has found $2,000 in cash at a Pokestop in New Jersey.

Hackettstown police say the player notified a nearby business Wednesday that he had found the money at a Pokestop, where players can get free in-game items, like an egg that can hatch into a full monster. The player said he would turn the money over to police.

Around the same time, the person who lost the money reported it missing near the business. An officer went there, and an employee told the officer the money had been found.

After checking surveillance video, the officer located the player, who turned over the cash.
