Beware Of Meth-Gators!!

I wouldn't want to be face to face with an alligator and I most definitely don't want to meet a gator hooked on meth! Tennessee police are warning residents to stop disposing their drugs in toilets and sinks. Loretto Police Department went on Facebook explaining how they found a suspect attempting to flush meth down the toilet. They used this opportunity to educate residents of the dangers of drugs being flushed using the message below.

"Folks…please don’t flush your drugs m’kay. When you send something down the sewer pipe it ends up in our retention ponds for processing before it is sent down stream. 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.

Edit/addition: We feel the need to mention that “drugs” also includes prescription pills. These medications can be disposed of at City Hall in a designated disposal container in the lobby."

Do your part and keep gators off drugs LOL
