Police in Louisiana came up with a clever way to bust people who are in possession of illegal drugs.

The Harahan Police Department posted on its Facebook page stating that meth in the area has been contaminated with the Zika virus.

So, to keep people safe, the police department kindly offered to test the meth, free of charge.

Please bring all of it to your local police department and they will test it for free.

The Facebook post stated if residents aren’t comfortable coming to the station, an officer would be willing to test the meth in the privacy of the owner’s home.

Facebook users commented on the post wondering if anyone fell for this trick.
