Authorities in Northern California made a snappy discovery during a routine probation check: An alligator-like reptile named "Mr. Teeth," who was apparently protecting a stash of marijuana.
When Alameda County Sheriff's deputies entered the Castro Valley home on Tuesday, they not only found 34 pounds of marijuana valued at an estimated $100,000, but also the 5-foot-long caiman inside a Plexiglas tank guarding it in a bedroom.

That's $2941 a pound ... WOW!
How does a lizzard guard something from inside a plastic cage?
Maybe if they sold it joint by joint? Another example of police corruption.
Depending on the quality they can get up to $400/oz.
The gator has already died.
Sgt. Stedenko, still on the job, after all these years.
They’re probably in more trouble for keeping a caiman than for having all that marijuana.
Dude, I just made a massive sell. What should I buy?
Go get yourself a Cayman?
A Caiman? Oh, OK.
Perhaps his owner kept the stash inside the cage.
Perhaps the caiman was hooked, and died because the police deprived him of his pot supply.
You're not supposed to question the news, comrade, you're supposed to swallow it whole with a glass of Kool-Aid. Pay no attention either to any smart alec who says caimans are less aggressive than American alligators which themselves are not the most aggressive crocodilians either.
It was there to guard the pot that's all you need to know. /s

Officer: Can I see you license sir?
Cheech: Isn’t it back there on the bumper man?
Cops would never use their authority to profit would they? Boulder Elk
