Prosecutors said police found guns, drugs and an alligator inside a Brooklyn couple's apartment in October.

Police say they found the alligator inside a tank in the Gravesend home of Michael Volpe and his wife, Alisa in October.

They were searching for guns at the home when they found the animal, which was removed by Animal Care and Control.

Officers said they also found two loaded handguns and marijuana at the home.

The couple is charged with multiple counts of possession of a weapon, ammunition and a controlled substance.

They're also charged with keeping an animal prohibited by the city. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
