LAKE WALES, Florida (AP) - Sheriff's deputies arrested three people after finding two frozen alligators, an illegal fish and hundreds of grams of methamphetamine inside a central Florida home.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says they found numerous methamphetamine smoking devices and bags of the drug within the reach of twin 10-month-old babies.

The Ledger of Lakeland reports the twins' parents, Shane Park and Cortney Williams, face multiple charges, including negligent child abuse. A third person who was at the house, Joshua Mellon, was also arrested.

Deputies found a living black bass, which was under size by state standards. Two alligators were in the freezer. Williams told them she was planning to stuff the gators.

The Department of Children and Families took custody of the twins. Their parents and the other man were taken to jail.
