Police warn against the rise of ‘Meth Gators’ in Alabama
Flushing meth down the loo could give rise to ‘meth gators’ in Alabama.
Step aside Sharknado, make way for the 2019 possible true story “Meth Gator.”
This is not a joke. Police in Tennessee are urging residents to think twice before flushing meth down the toilet because it could contaminate rivers home to Gators (Alligators) and turn them into meth monsters.
The request came in after officers with the Loretto Police Department in Tennessee arrested a man n after he allegedly tried to flush 12 grams of meth, 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth, and several paraphernalia items down the toilet. The suspect, named Andy Perry, was charged with drug possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, and tampering with evidence.
Now that’s methed up
In a Facebook post (content unavailable), Loretta Police pleaded with residents to avoid following Perry’s method:
“When you send something down the sewer pipe it ends up in our retention ponds for processing before it is sent down stream,” the post explained. “Now our sewer guys take great pride in releasing water that is cleaner than what is in the creek, but they are not really prepared for meth.”
“Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help. So, if you need to dispose of your drugs just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way.”
So, avoid giving rise to meth gators and rather call the police to dispose of your drugs for you (said no drug dealer ever).
