An alligator was seized from an alleged Jessup gang member's home after Anne Arundel County police executed a search warrant in a drug investigation.
The three-foot American Alligator, along with $3,000 worth of marijuana, cash and other items were taken from a home in the 7500 block of Gleneagle Drive on Friday.
Alligators are not permitted in a residence and animal control was called to the home. Police said the alligator was healthy and was taken to a facility for exotic animals.
Police believe the resident, Michael Golden, 32, is associated with the Dead Man Inc. street gang.
He was charged with possession with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana. He could face additional charges pending related to the other unknown substances taken from the home.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
