Police department ‘cancels’ crime due to freezing temperatures


A suburban Chicago police department has cancelled crime and is asking criminals to stay inside and read.

Possibly record-setting below freezing temperatures are set to pummel northern Illinois this week. The Westchester Police Department wrote on Facebook:

“Due to the extreme cold and wind, the Westchester Police Department is canceling all misdemeanor and felony criminal activities. Criminals, please take note, it is too cold to commit crimes. Stay inside and read, watch Netflix, go on the FBI Bank Robbers website and help catch other criminals, anything, but for the love of polar bears, do not go outside and commit crimes.”
