Going to pot - with a 1.2m alligator

Hemet - California narcotics investigators found a $1.5m marijuana-growing operation at a house and an unusual security guard - a 1.2m-long alligator named Wally.

The Riverside County drug task force team moved in on the Hemet area house on Monday night and seized nearly 2 300 pot plants.

The commander says agents also found the reptile, described as a "watchgator."

The healthy 25kg American alligator was turned over to the Phelan-based Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary, since gators are illegal in California.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that 29-year-old John Nathan Donna, who lives in the home, was arrested and booked for investigation of marijuana cultivation and possession.

He was released on Tuesday on $100 000 bail.
