(LEX 18) — The Powell County Sheriff provided a laugh for everyone during a very intense time in our country.

On the organization's Facebook page, the sheriff humbly asked criminals to stop all illegal activities.

"Due to the coronavirus, the Sheriff's department is asking that all criminal activities stop until further notice. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in the matter. We will update you when we deem it’s appropriate to proceed with yo bad selves," reads the post.

They did not specify whether the hoarding of toilet paper and hand sanitizer was considered a crime. One commenter did offer to "deal" some toilet paper if anyone was interested.
