MOLINE, Illinois (NEWS3) – Due to the dangerous wind chills, the Moline Police Department says “it is too cold to commit crimes.”

In a humorous Facebook post, the department pleaded with criminals to just stay home.

“Stay inside and read, watch Netflix, call Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities on other criminals, anything, but for the love of polar bears, do not go outside and commit crimes,” the post reads.

The post has received nearly 5,000 reactions and over 3,500 shares on Facebook.

Winds chills Thursday and Friday are expected to drop between 25 and 35 below zero.
