Police warn flushing drugs down the toilet could create 'meth-gators' | 10News WTSP

A police department in Tennessee is warning people to stop flushing drugs down their toilets or sinks out of fear they could create "meth-gators." The Loretto Police Department recently posted the ominous Facebook warning after officers found a suspect unsuccessfully trying to flush meth and paraphernalia at a home. He was arrested, but police say this is becoming an issue because flushed drugs can end up in retention ponds for processing before they are sent downstream.
