A crocodile was found during a drug raid in Trenton Thursday.

TRENTON - (AP) - Five drug raids led to the seizure of the normal assortment of marijuana, ecstasy and guns and the removal of one not-so normal thing: a crocodile.

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office says authorities found a small crocodile living in the basement of a Trenton house during a raid Thursday and turned the reptile over to animal control. Along with the crocodile, authorities found marijuana. Two men were arrested there.

The search warrants of the five homes yielded more than 100 grams of ecstasy, two guns and more than $2,000. A Pontiac Grand Prix was also seized.

Authorities say 35-year-old Alexander Green was the target of the investigation and faces several drug charges. It's unclear if the Bordentown resident has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
