Tennessee Police Warn of "Meth Gators"

Police in Loretto are warning that flushing illegal drugs down the toilet could create "meth-gators."

LORETTO, Tenn.  --  Police in Tennessee are warning that flushing illegal drugs down the toilet could create "meth-gators." 

In a Facebook post, the Loretto Police Department said methamphetamine had already created hyped-up gators in Alabama, plus an attack squirrel. 

"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," LPD wrote on Facebook.

Police are telling folks to call them if they want to dispose of drugs (including prescription drugs) so they can make sure it's done safely.  They haven't said whether callers will get a pass on being arrested.
