    The Manchester, New Hampshire Police Department is trying to draw criminals into the booking area of their station by announcing the presence of a rare Pokemon.

    On its Facebook page, the department posted an update informing "all area PokemonGo players" that they had found a "Charizard" in the booking area.

    The police further stated that because the character is so rare, that only a specific group of people are invited.  Players are then asked to click a link that directs them to their Wanted Persons page to see if their name is on the list.

    At the end of the post, players are told to "hurry up before the Charizard leaves!"
