HEBER SPRINGS, AR (KAIT/KARK) - The Heber Springs police department hopes to raise awareness about drug use through a funny Facebook post.

The post claimed meth in the area had been contaminated by the Zika virus and that anyone with meth should bring it to the station to get it checked out.

"And I even commented, I hope someone brings their meth in and asks us to check it.//We joke about things sometimes to bring attention to a problem, and that's kind of what we were doing," the chief said.

The post has been shared hundreds of times but so far, the chief says no one has come by to drop off their drugs.
