BRAINTREE, Mass. — Police in Braintree, Massachusetts, are asking residents "to hold off" all criminal activity until the extreme heat is over.

"Folks. Due to the extreme heat, we are asking anyone thinking of doing criminal activity to hold off until Monday," the department wrote in a Facebook post. "Conducting criminal activity, in this extreme heat is next level henchmen status, and also very dangerous."

The high in Braintree is expected to reach 95 degrees, with a real feel of 106 degrees. Ohio is under an Excessive Haat Warning through Saturday evening.

"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."
