BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn couple has been indicted for keeping an alligator in their home as a pet.

Court records show that the couple, 32-year-old Michael Volpe and 25-year-old Alisa Volpe, are being charged with keeping a forbidden animal in New York City, as well as drug and weapons possession.

Police say they found the alligator with marijuana and prescription pills using a search warrant back on Oct. 1.
