BRAINTREE, Mass. (KKTV) - If you plan on committing a crime in Massachusetts, one police department is asking you to hold off until Monday.

The Braintree Police Department posted the following to Facebook Friday night:
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. Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, but also very dangerous.

Stay home, blast the AC, binge Stranger Things season 3 and we will all meet again on Monday when it's cooler.

Sincerely,

The PoPo
