A police department in Tennessee is warning residents not to flush illicit drugs down the toilet, lest the practice give rise to “meth gators.”
The announcement was made on Saturday, following a successful drug raid that led to the arrest of Andy Perry, who was found trying to flush meth down the toilet.
Perry was arrested for Possession of Schedule II (Meth) for Resale, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Tampering with Evidence.
The Loretto Police Department lauded officers for the success of the raid, and warned citizens about the dangers of flushing drugs.
“When you send something down the sewer pipe, it ends up in our retention ponds for processing before it is sent down stream,” LPD wrote on Facebook. “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.”
The raid turned up 12 grams of Methamphetamine, 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth, and several items of paraphernalia.
