Police in Tennessee are urging people not to flush methamphetamine down the toilet because it could result in ‘meth-gators’. 

The warning from the Loretto Police Department came after officers found a suspected drug dealer flushing his meth and paraphernalia down the toilet when they raided his home on Saturday. 

They charged Andy Perry with a series of drug-related offenses and seized 12 grams of methamphetamine, 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth and several paraphernalia items.

Following his arrest, they issued a public plea for people not to dispose of their drugs via the sewer because it could, among those things, make alligators high and aggressive. 

‘Folks…please don’t flush your drugs m’kay,’ the police department wrote on 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. 

‘They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help.’

The police department urged people to contact them if they needed help disposing of drugs, including prescription medication.  

‘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,’ they wrote.
