Cops in Castro Valley, California discovered a five foot long alligator being used as a watchdog over a dealer's weed operation.

According to local newspaper, The Santa Cruz Sentinel, the gator was being kept in a tank watching over the dealer's 34 pounds of marijuana.

Alameda County sheriffs arrested and jailed the dealer while the watchdog gator, aptly named "Mr. Teeth," was remanded to the Oakland Zoo.
