Meth, frozen gators found in Polk home


Published:

Polk County deputies arrested three people after finding two frozen alligators, an illegal fish and hundreds of grams of methamphetamine inside a Lake Wales home.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says it found numerous methamphetamine smoking devices and bags of the drug within the reach of twin 10-month-old babies.

The Ledger reports the twins’ parents face multiple charges, including negligent child abuse. A third person who was at the house was arrested.

Deputies found a living black bass, which was under size by state standards. Two alligators were in the freezer. The woman told them she was planning to stuff the gators.

The Department of Children & Families took custody of the twins.

Their parents and the other man were taken to jail.
