New York City police who searched a Brooklyn man’s apartment on a warrant Tuesday found that he counted among his roommates a small alligator and not one but nine boa constrictors.

Johnnie Morgan, 44, has been charged with reckless endangerment, possession of marijuana, and a host of local law violations. This is his 17th arrest, the NYPD Special Operations Division told amNewYork.

The Special Operations Division also took to Twitter to document its findings, which included a bag of marijuana and live ammunition.
