Major buzzkill.

If you're in Champlin and hankering for a bit of afternoon delight, find a more appropriate setting than a parking lot.

That's the message from Champlin Police Department, which has issued an unusual warning after apparently responding to a report of a couple meeting for sex outside a local auto shop.

"We would like to pass along a friendly reminder to everyone looking for some alone time with a sweetheart to please avoid any romantic entanglement in busy parking lots during normal business hours," Champlin PD said on its Facebook page.

"While we understand the cold weather can leave few options for finding some privacy in the moment, we would like to clarify that yes, you will draw suspicion when people can see you.

"You know, because it’s noon. And you’re in an autobody parking lot.

"Plus, nothing kills the mood quite like Officer Irish tapping on your window. So please, save your sweetie the embarrassment and find somewhere private for any canoodling."
