FLORIDA –Three people were arrested Tuesday after deputies found two frozen alligators, an illegal fish, a marijuana plant and hundreds of grams of methamphetamine inside a Florida house.

According to The Ledger, the drugs were found within reach of twin 10-month-old infants, who were in the house.

Shane William Park, 29, and Cortney Loraine Williams, 24, each face a variety of charges, including two counts of killing or possessing an alligator, two counts of negligent child abuse without bodily harm, and armed trafficking in methamphetamine, an arrest report stated.

The infants were removed from the home by the Department of Children and Families.

A third man, Joshua Lee Mellon, was also at the house with the couple on Tuesday when deputies executed a search warrant.

He was arrested on possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia charges.

The Ledger reported that during the search, deputies also found a living black bass, which was undersized by Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission standards, and two frozen dead alligators inside a freezer.

Williams told deputies she did not have a permit for the animals and was planning to stuff the alligators.

Mellon was released from the Polk County Jail on Wednesday on $1,500 bail. Park and Williams are being held in the jail without bail.
