Posted: Updated:

It's the newest smartphone game -- you may see people running around trying to track down Pokemon. 

And it's getting the attention of crooks.

Near Saint Louis, police say robbers used Pokemon Go to get players into a parking lot.

Then four teens allegedly pulled a gun out on the person playing the game.

Police say the four teens are linked to 11 robberies in the area, but it's not clear if the Pokemon game played a part in all of those robberies.
