SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News)- The Salt Lake City Police Department is asking all criminal activity to cease until further notice.

In a lighthearted post on social media, the department asked criminals to take a break in order to stop the spread of coronavirus in Utah.

“We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime & thank criminals in advance,” the post stated.

Don’t worry criminals, the department says they’ll let you know when you can return to your normal criminal behavior.
