Warning issued for the rise of ‘meth-gators’

The Loretto Police Department in Tennessee is imploring people to think twice before they decide to flush their drugs down the toilet.

The plead came in the form of a Facebook post after law enforcement caught presumed drug dealer Andy Perry flushing numerous paraphernalia items down the toilet during a recent bust. Police confiscated 12 grams of meth and 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth, but it is currently unknown how many drugs Perry managed to get rid of through the city’s sewer system.

“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,” police wrote on Facebook.
