POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) – A loaded gun, drugs and an alligator.

That's what police found in a Poughkeepsie home before arresting 28-year-old John Simmons. He faces four years in prison.

Simmons was sentenced earlier this week, and ordered to pay $7,000 in restitution, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

He had pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

When police executed a search warrant on his home
last summer, they found a .22-caliber revolver, some marijuana and
cocaine and a 2-foot-long alligator.
