YORK Co., Va. - Stop all crime now. That's the message from the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office.

“Due to the #COVID-19 pandemic and its contagious nature, the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office is asking that all criminal activities and nefarious conduct cease until further notice. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime & thank criminals in advance. We will update you when you can return to your normal criminal behavior,” the sheriff’s office wrote, adding the hilarious hashtags #SocialDistancingNow and #behaveyourself
