Caption: Police said flushing drugs down the toilet could create meth gators (Picture

Drug users who flush their stash down the toilet could create meth-gators, according to police.

Cops in Tennessee issued the warning after they caught a suspected dealer trying to get rid of 12 grams of methamphetamine and paraphernalia down the toilet at his home.

News site AL.com said the man was charged with multiple offences while police warned on Facebook that his actions could result in the creation of meth-gators.

The post, which was later removed, warned users that flushing could affect the local wildlife and create drugged-up creatures.

It read: 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.

Early this morning Officers with the Loretto Police Department, with assistance from the Lawrence County Deputies, served a search warrant at 112 First Avenue in Loretto. Once inside the home Officers found Andy Perry attempting to flush methamphetamine along with several items of paraphernalia. He was unsuccessful. Perry was arrested for Possession of Schedule II (Meth) for Resale, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Tampering with Evidence. 12 grams of Methamphetamine, 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth, and several items of paraphernalia were seized. Perry is being held at the Lawrence County Jail. 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. Also, if you have any info on drugs use and abuse in our community contact us on here or at city hall and we will se</br><a href=https://metro.co.uk/2019/07/16/fears-of-meth-gators-in-us-as-people-flush-drugs-down-toilet-10348528/><strong>Read More – Source</strong></a></p> [contf] [contfnew]         <img src=
