It's COLD! So cold, criminals are staying home and police in central New York are cancelling crime.

The Cayuga County Sheriff's Office joined law enforcement agencies in states hit by the polar vortex, asking criminals to take a day or two off.

"Due to the extreme cold the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office is joining the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office (Kentucky)and will be canceling all misdemeanor and felony activities," they joked on Facebook.

"Criminals please take note, it is too cold to commit crimes! Criminals please, stay inside, watch Netflix, call crime stoppers on other criminals, anything, but for the love of polar bears, do not go outside and commit crimes. #polarvortex"
