A gun bust in Gravesend netted officers loaded firearms, drugs and a 3-foot-long alligator.

The raid occurred in Michael, 32, and Alisa Volpe’s, 25, apartment at about 5:30 a.m. Police found the alligator in a cage, according to the New York Daily News.

Police discovered the caged reptile as they executed a search warrant at the Gravesend apartment of Michael and Alisa Volpe about 5:30 a.m.

Cops also found brass knuckles, marijuana and pills.

“You never know who you’re living with,” said a man who resides above the Volpes’ basement apartment. “This alligator thing is bugging me out… I never heard an alligator down there!”

Cops charged the couple with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and harboring a prohibited animal. Michael Volpe has four previous arrests.

Police sources said the alligator “didn’t look very good.” The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine on the Upper West Side, was called to take the animal away, according to DNA Info.
