An early-morning raid on a Normangee home turned up some items authorities expected to find, and some they didn't.

Leon County Sheriff's investigators were looking for drugs when they executed a search warrant Thursday at 6 a.m. at a house near Main Street. They found marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and prescription pills. They also seized 58 firearms, some of which had been illegally modified.

What they didn't expect to encounter were three alligators living in the backyard. The animals were taken by game wardens.

The couple living in the home was arrested. No names have been released.
