Tennessee police did a mostly-joking public service announcement about people flushing their drugs down the toilet saying it could create meth-eating alligators

That's the half-joking, half-not message Tennessee's Loretto Police Department shared after officers busted a man allegedly trying to flush his stash of meth down the toilet as the cops were serving him a search warrant at his home on Saturday.

Police are advising those in possession of drugs from flushing them down the toilet because they will taint the nearby streams and retention ponds.

Police in Tennessee are warning drug dealers against the dangers of flushing methamphetamine down the toilet.

"Meth gators are not allowed in the library, unless they are registered service meth gators", the Loretto Branch Library wrote.

The Loretto police department warned against discarding drug material down sewer pipes as it may affect wildlife in the area. However, if the warning is meant to be taken completely tongue-in-cheek, we can all hope that the SyFy channel creates a new Meth-Gator movie series. The user, Andy Perry, was immediately arrested after it was discovered that he was in possession of 2 grams of powdered methamphetamine and 24 fluid ounces of liquid meth.

'Folks...please don't flush your drugs m'kay, ' the police department wrote on Facebook.

They say that the drug is already endangering water fowl, adding: "Ducks, geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped-up on meth would do. They've had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help".

Authorities ended the post by urging residents to dispose of all drugs, including prescription medications, properly by contacting the department or dropping off medications at city hall.
