An Akron man on the run from the law, was found last night at a home in Willoughby Hills. When the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force not arrested the man, they also reportedly discovered his pet caiman, a reptile closely related to an alligator, living in a large, glass tank.
It's not known how the man, Robert Watson, wanted in Akron for a probation violation, procured the three-foot reptile, a species commonly found in South and Central America (and not Ohio).
Animal control was called to the scene, the Akron Beacon Journal reported
. It's not yet known what's next for the caiman.
