Two men, Kevin Norton and James Stumbo, were arrested for threatening violence to attendees of the Pokemon World Championships, which just recently concluded. Both men were arrested after their plans were discovered on social media. The information was brought to the attention of the Boston Police Department and the Pokemon Company International, both of whom began investigating the claims.
A search warrant was issued for the vehicle, in which weapons were found alongside hundreds of ammunition rounds. The men were charged with unlicensed possession of firearms and ammunition. According to several reports, both men were competitors to the Pokemon World Championships as well, which leaves this even more puzzling.
