WARRENSBURG, Mo.  (ABC4 News)  Please don’t commit any crimes for the next three days. That’s the plea from police in Warrensburg, Missouri. The department released a comical plea to would be criminals on their Facebook page on Monday. 

That area of Missouri is getting hit with a blast of arctic air. The high temperatures during the day will be around 20 degrees and below zero at night. The wind chills are forecasted to be -20 to -30, so police decided to ask people to avoid committing crimes.

The Facebook post says… “So…we are asking a favor (at least for the next three days); can you keep the criminalling to a minimum?” “It is REALLY cold out…do yourself (and us) a favor…stay inside. Be nice to each other, watch reruns of Say Yes to the Dress (we hear from the firefighters – that it’s a really good show). Mmmmkay, thanks!”

The post asks for no “criminalling” and makes a South Park reference with the “Mmmmkay” at the end.
