GEORGE TOWN: A few Pokemon GO players were caught by surprise when a team of police officers conducted a check on them in Lebuh Acheh and Lebuh Cannon here following complaints of noise disturbances and traffic obstruction in the area.

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said a report was received from a resident, claiming that the activities of Pokemon GO players have disturbed the peacefulness of the area.

ACP Mior Faridalathrash Wahid (left) advises some Pokemon GO players not to disturb others during their monster-hunting quests.

"I have instructed traffic police personnel to issue summonses to players whose vehicles or motorcycles are parked haphazardly on road shoulders, causing traffic congestion here.

"Police have also advised players not to make so much noise, which could disturb public order and the residents' peacefulness in the area around Lebuh Acheh.

"I do not see anything wrong in playing Pokemon GO, but we will advise them," he told reporters during the operation on Tuesday.
