SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (AP) - Florida authorities tracking a stolen car also discovered a little something unexpected — a baby alligator being kept as a pet.
Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma held a press conference Friday to announce details of the arrest made the day before. A deputy ran a license plate number and discovered a car was stolen.
The deputy trailed the car to a Lake Mary home and stopped a separate car that was attempting to leave the driveway. Deputies found guns, heroin and cocaine in the car, according to an area newspaper.
Inside the house, investigators found the baby alligator along with more drugs and guns. The sheriff’s office posted photos on its Facebook page.
