Frozen Alligators and Meth Found in Florida Home
Two cars in every garage, boiling Gatorade in every pot, frozen alligators in every freezer, and a bunch of meth within reach of your twin babies. Isn't that the Florida dream? Wait, no, excuse us -- nightmare.
Three people were arrested in Polk County after deputies found a bunch of meth, a marijuana plot in their home, frozen gators, and, somehow, a live sea bass.
According to the Ledger, the arrests went down yesterday after deputies raided the Lake Wales home of Shane William Park, 29, and Cortney Loraine Williams, 24. Police found the pot plant in a home office, and about 278 grams of methamphetamines scattered through out the home.
One bag was found on a bedroom floor and within reach of the couple's two 10-month-old twin babies.
A live undersized black bass was also found.
As for the two dead undersized alligators found in the freezer, Williams explained that she was planning on stuffing them.
The pair now faces charges of two counts of killing or possessing an alligator, two counts of negligent child abuse without bodily harm, and armed trafficking in methamphetamine.
Joshua Lee Mellon was also found in the home and charged with meth and paraphernalia possession.
The two children were taken into protected services.
