Tennessee Police Warning Residents to Not Flush Drugs Down the Toilet Over “Meth-Gator” Concerns

Police in Loretta, Tennessee, have issued a warning to residents stating that they should not flush drugs down their toilets due to concerns of creating “meth-gators.”

The warning comes after police say investigators caught someone “attempting to flush methamphetamine along with several items of paraphernalia” over the weekend. Officials say they are concerned of the drug going into the sewage system, where it would eventually end up going downstream and affecting wildlife.

Authorities said that waterfowl, including geese and ducks, end up in that water, and they “shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do.” But in addition to birds, officials said if the water headed far enough downstream… “it would create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama.”
