(WTLV) A Jacksonville, Florida gas station owner is asking people not to warm urine in the microwave.

"We got sick and tired of people bringing their urine containers," says Parul Patel, owner of On the Fly convenience store and BP gas station."They're just random people walking and it's happening every day."

The people who come in to do it are not customers, Patel says. "They walk in off the street, microwave urine containers then leave."

The gas station is within walking distance of a Quest Diagnostics and a LabCorp. Both companies offer drug testing services and collect urine samples.

Patel says some people walk into her store so desperate to pass their tests, they become violent when they're asked to leave.

"We try to stop these kind of people," Patel says. "They become so aggressive with us."
