Maybe it’s a good thing I-502 passed for the sake of safety. Thurston County sheriffs continue to investigate a drug-related shooting in the vicinity of Scott Lake near Olympia. Officers were called to a dispute between two individuals, possibly over a drug deal gone bad.

One of the men, age 41, allegedly shot the other, age 30. The shooter told authorities he did it in self defense. While searching the property, sheriffs found illegal marijuana growing and two five-foot alligators. The layout of the grow made it apparent the gators were being used to guard the marijuana!

It gets even better. Police also found a stripper pole inside the home; the suspect’s girlfriend reportedly works as an exotic dancer. No word if the gators are part of her act.   Authorities are working with local animal control agencies to figure out what to do with the reptiles. We have an idea: boots!
