The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries charged a New Orleans man with illegal possession of piranhas, an alligator and drug paraphernalia.

The department says neighbors complained when 22-year-old Quinn Vanderbosch left the alligator during his Christmas vacation.

Piranhas are forbidden because Louisiana has a similar habitat to the invasive species’ natural home.

If you’re caught possessing the fish you could be fined up to $950 and up to 120 days in jail.

Illegal alligator possession could get someone a fine up to $500 and 90 days in jail.
