MILFORD, MI --Some places in life you should just avoid going - especially in a game of Pokemon Go. For one man, avoiding the local police station would've been a wise move.
Milford police say William Wilcox, who is a known criminal with a warrant for his arrest, appeared at their flagpole Thursday morning.
"He was coming here because he knew that Milford police building is a gem in the game of Pokemon Go," Milford Police Chief Tom Lindberg said.
