PHOTOS: Men Caught Stealing 260 Baby Alligators

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Wildlife officers recently caught up with two Central Florida men who had just spent a night stealing baby alligators.

Robert "Bo" Duval, 32, and Christopher Scroggins, 22, both of Bushnell, were arrested early Thursday morning on the shores of Lake Apopka, near Orlando, with a bag of 260 alligator hatchlings on their boat, according to The Miami Herald.

Upon being questioned by officers, the men surrendered the hatchlings. They were charged with felony possession/capture of hatchling alligators and misdemeanor conspiracy charges. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that one of the men also received felony charges for possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon.

When the officers approached the men, the older suspect admitted, "You have got me, and I have a lot of alligator hatchlings," according to MSNBC.

For the hatchling possession charges, a third-degree felony, the men each face up to a $5,000 fine and five years behind bars. The Orlando Sentinel also reported one of the men identified himself as a "critter catcher." >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE AND TO LOK AT MORE PICTURES
