The Gratis Police Department in Ohio recently posted on their Facebook Page "
WARNING: If you have recently purchased Meth in Preble, Montgomery, Darke or Butler Counties it may be contaminated with the Zika Virus. Please bring it to the Gratis Police Department and we will test it for free. If you're not comfortable coming into our office, please contact us and we'll test your Meth in the privacy of your home." They then added Disclaimer: methamphetamine can't be a host for the zika virus.
Assistant Chief Dennis Blankenship said "We're just trying to keep things lighthearted and humanize the police department with some jokes, We're not doing it to arrest 100 people that are going to bring in meth. Drug addiction is a serious issue and I pride myself in helping people when it comes to that." He said the post wasn't intended to lead to any arrests.
