Reptiles confiscated from UA dorm room

The Arkansas Traveler broke the story that a baby alligator, a rattlesnake and six pythons were confiscated by the UAPD from a dorm room in a UA residence hall last Thursday.

Two 18-year-old students told police they received the reptiles free from Craigslist and planned to resell them for profit.

The two were issued $1,240 each in citations from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
