Police Warn Of ‘Meth Gators’ After Suspected Drug Dealer Flushes Stash


When I first saw this story I thought oh boy could this be something we will see soon on Sci-Fi? Tennessee police have arrested a suspected drug dealer over the weekend, but not before he tried to flush his methamphetamine down the toilet. This is according to the Loretto Police Department.

Now, why am I writing about this? It's not because of what happened during the arrest, it's what the police said after. The Loretto police issued a warning on their Facebook:

“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."

The comment section of this is probably the best thing ever!
