A 28-year-old man was arrested and will face theft charges in court on Sept. 7, police said.* Nintendo&#039;s Pokemon Go has become an unexpected smash hit, using augmented reality and Google mapping to make animated characters appear in the real world, overlaid on the nearby landscape viewed through players&#039; mobile phone cameras.</p><br clear="all"/>
