A person playing 'Pokemon Go' in Warren County found $2,000 at a Pokestop Wednesday afternoon.



Hackettstown police say the player notified a nearby business that he had found the money and would turn it over to police.



Around the same time, the person who lost the money had reported it missing near the business. An officer went there and an employee told the officer the player had found the money.



After checking surveillance video, the officer located the player, who turned over the cash.



His name has not been released.



'Pokemon Go' is a popular smartphone game that sends players to physical locations to "catch" virtual Pokemon characters.
