2 alligators seized in NJ drug sting
Thirty-eight-year-old Kemyatta Johnson, who lives at the home, faces numerous drug and weapons charges
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Atlantic City police made an unexpected discovery when they raided the home of a suspected drug dealer.
Two small alligators were found inside the Pennsylvania Avenue residence on Friday, along with a pound of marijuana and more than $2,600 in cash.
The alligators — each about 1 1/2- to 2-feet-long — will be turned over to state wildlife officials, who will try to return them to their natural habitat.
Thirty-eight-year-old Kemyatta Johnson, who lives at the home, faces numerous drug and weapons charges. He was being held Saturday at the Atlantic County Jail on $100,000 full cash bail, and officials did not know if he had retained an attorney.
