While executing a search warrant in Long Branch today, detectives found something they weren't quite looking for! A Gator! A Long Branch resident was apparently keeping it as a house pet.

The animal was confiscated and turned over to Long Branch Animal Control Officer Deb Nagel who contacted NJ Fish, Game & Wildlife to arrange for a pickup. According to a preliminary report, fines for housing an animal like this can range up to $25,000.00.
