Police chief admits there isn’t Zika in meth after Facebook post goes viral
Ashley May, USA TODAY – The Harahan, Louisiana chief of police said a viral Facebook post about meth being contaminated with the Zika virus was a stunt.
The department never had reason to believe Zika was able to contaminate meth. And, despite the department’s offer, it has no way to test for Zika in meth.
The department posted a notice to its Facebook page saying meth “in any area of Louisiana” might be “contaminated with the Zika virus.”
It said people who bring their methamphetamine to their local police department or call police will receive a “free” test. Read more.
