“Pokemon Go” suspects plead not guilty to sneaking in zoo

Robin Bartholomy, 25, and Adrian Crawford, 26 (Lucas County Jail)

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – A man and woman accused of climbing over a fence at the Toledo Zoo to play “Pokemon Go” have pleaded not guilty to trespassing charges.

The pair was in court Friday to face misdemeanor criminal trespassing charge.

Police say 25-year old Robin Bartholomy and 26-year-old Adrian Crawford, both of Toledo, went over a fence at the zoo early Thursday in search of the smartphone game’s cartoon monsters.

Bartholomy told Toledo area media outlets she knew it wasn’t a very responsible thing to do, but added that she was on the hunt for the monsters.

Crawford said they were having a great time until the police showed up. Both say they were in the zoo about an hour before being spotted on a security camera.

They’re now banned from the zoo.
