Braintree police: Crime canceled due to extreme heat

The Braintree Police Department is requesting all would-be crooks to hold off on criminal activity during the weekend heat wave.

In a humorous Facebook post Friday, the department implored people to keep cool instead of committing crimes.

“Folks. Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday,” the post reads. “It is straight up hot as soccer balls out there. Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous.”

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