BRAINTREE, Mass. — A police department in Massachusetts asked the public to not commit any crimes over the weekend because it was too hot outside.

The Baintree Police Department, like many, were hoping to stay indoors as temperatures continue plaguing the country.

“Folks. Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday. It is straight up hot as soccer balls out there,” police said in a Facebook post.

“Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous,” they added.

The Baintree Police even gave a few alternatives as to what to do to avoid the temperatures outside.

“Stay home, blast the AC, binge Stranger Things season 3, play with the face app, practice karate in your basement,” police said. “We will all meet again on Monday when it’s cooler.”

It seemed to be pretty effective because according to a followup post on their Facebook page, zero arrests were made over the weekend.
