CNN is reporting that police in Braintree, Massachusetts are imploring would-be criminals to wait until Monday, after a heat wave passes, to commit crime.

In a post that's gotten over 100,000 shares since Friday they say "It is straight up hot as soccer balls out there."

CNN says the department confirmed to them that the post is indeed, legit.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for parts of the eastern United States, including Braintree where temperatures could reach 102 degrees.

The heat index, which factors in body temperature, air temperature and humidity shows it could feel as hot as 115 degrees according to the weather service.

That's simply too hot for law breaking, Braintree police said. Committing a crime in this weather is "next level henchmen status.'

"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.

The message is signed, "The PoPo."

In a postscript, the police also asked people not to spoil the plot of Stranger Things.
