Charges were filed against a Minnesota father and son for harboring alligators.

Two small gators, named Bonnie and Clyde, escaped from a home in Scandia, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

30-year-old William St. Sauver and his dad, William St. Sauver Sr. were charged in Washington County for keeping the wild animals.

Both men were being investigated shortly after an alligator was spotted on Goose Lake late last month.

According to Authorities, the St. Sauver's told them they have a third alligator, larger than Bonnie and Clyde, but have not said where it is.

A deputy searched the property and couldn't find it.
