Yet Again: Drugs, Guns, and Gators

Police: Raid turned up guns, pot, baby alligators: "Guns and drugs and alligators, oh my!

That's how the attorney for a South San Francisco man described the charges against her client, which she said were exaggerated.

Nevertheless, prosecutors say 39-year-old Lazaro Leon Jr. pleaded no contest Wednesday in San Mateo County Superior Court to possessing an assault rifle and marijuana with intent to sell, as well as two other gun charges.

The case stems from a January raid on Leon's home that police say turned up nearly two dozen guns, 13 marijuana plants, a pound of processed pot and three baby alligators."
