Ducks and geese and meth-gators, oh my!
After arresting a man for possession of meth, drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence, police in Loretto, Louisiana, warned community members on Facebook against flushing drugs down the toilet because it could create "meth-gators."
Police arrested Andy Perry after they seized "12 grams of Methamphetamine, 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth, and several items of paraphernalia" inside his home. The arrest inspired the following Facebook post:
On a more or less serious note: Folks…please don’t flush your drugs m’kay. 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. So, 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.
TL; DR: Don't do drugs.
