Police conducting a search warrant in West Baltimore got a surprise when they encountered three alligators, a pit bull and a turtle. 

On Nov. 21 police raided a second-floor apartment in the 1900 block of McCulloh St., in the Druid Heights neighborhood, where they found smoking devices, razors, and baggies with drug residue, and ammunition, police wrote in a court documents.

Also in the hallway: two alligators and a turtle. A pit bull was in the kitchen, and another alligator was found in the rear second-floor bedroom.

Police said the animals were taken by animal control. 

Police charged two men with drug offenses and counts related to importing an alligator into the state. Their bonds were set at $6,000 and $5,000, and both have been released.
