BLANCO, Texas — The Blanco Police Department out of central Texas has asked citizens to halt all crime due to unbearable heat.

"Dear Citizens," their post says, " It’s hot outside. I mean REALLY hot. I’m talking the 'wear an oven mitt to touch the steering wheel while you’re driving' kind of hot. Due to this crazy heat, we humbly ask any of y’all that are entertaining the thought of getting your crime on today to kindly refrain until at least November."

They took the liberty of proposing an alternative for anyone thinking about committing a crime during the dog days of summer.

The post says, "Until then stay inside and catch up on episodes of 90 Day Fiancé in the delicious air conditioning...Mmmkay?"

The last part of their message includes an interesting question about the legality of the sun.

"P.S. Does anyone know if the sun can be charged with disorderly conduct? Asking for a friend," the post says.
