BRAZORIA, Texas, April 16 (UPI) -- A Texas state trooper said he discovered a six-foot alligator in the back of a car driven by a burglary suspect in the town of Brazoria.

Trooper Steve Stanfield said the suspect, William Johnson, allegedly put the gator into her car after he came across it on a road near Angleton, Texas, and then drove with the animal to Brazoria, where he allegedly broke into a house, KTRK-TV, Houston, reported Monday.

"From my understanding, he tried to get a big screen TV out of the house," Stanfield said. "He couldn't get it in the car by himself, so he recruited a neighbor, who, when he saw the alligator, dropped the TV and said, 'Alright, I ain't got nothing to do with it.'"

Stanfield said Johnson was arrested and the alligator was turned over to a game warden.
