Drug-Sniffing Lizard Is on the Case…Or Is It?

Drug-sniffing dogs are so yesterday.

The police department in Avondale, Ariz. has pulled a fast one on the public with this Facebook post announcing it had sworn in a bearded dragon named Iroh to help suss out drugs.

If you think this is too cute to be true, well, you’re right. It turns out the Avondale Police Department was pulling a late April Fool’s Day prank, meaning criminals in the area scan breathe a bong-filled sigh of relief.

KNXV initially bought the hype, as evidenced by the below video:

The station quickly realized it had gotten caught up in this much different take on the all-encompassing fake news we hear so much about these days and straightened out the matter for its viewers:

Interestingly, the Avondale PD has been down this road before with Iroh, so you’d think the media would’ve learned that whole “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me” thing we’ve heard since we were kids.
