COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — Officers with the Chicago Police Department's gang crime unit probably expect to find drugs in Jorge "Lil Man" Carrillo's home, but the alligator may have surprised them.

Police discovered a 3-foot American alligator Thursday when they went to the West Lawn home of Jorge Carrillo, a.k.a. "Lil Man,"  to serve a warrant, according to court records and prosecutors.

Carrillo, 30, of the 7500 block of West 59th Street, was charged with possession of a controlled substance for having what police believe to be cocaine and owning a dangerous animal, according to court records. 

It was not clear Friday what happened to the fresh water reptile.
