WATERLOO, Ill. (KMOV.com) – The sheriff of Monroe County, Illinois says he has made the courthouse a place where he says Pokémon Go players are not allowed after dark.

The scenic courthouse square in Waterloo, Illinois is apparently a hot spot for Pokémon Go players.

Neal Rohlfing, Sheriff of Monroe County says he wrote on the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook page to warn that trespassing rules around the courthouse will be enforced. The sheriff even posted a photo of locked up Pokémon to make the point.

“I can get why he'd do it, it's that I don't think it's the best way to approach it,” said a Monroe County, Ill. Pokémon Go player.

Rohlfing further reports bumping into people and falling over is not being courteous while others play Pokémon Go.

Rohlfing also mentions he does want to caution young players about being out late and being lured into an unsafe situation.
