How do you know you've stumbled upon a classy marijuana grow operation? While it's debatable whether such a thing even exists, the discovery of two guard alligators and a brass stripper pole would surely be high on the list.

According to KING 5, that's just what Thurston County Sheriff's deputies found Monday night when responding to a shooting south of Olympia near Scott Lake.

As KING 5 reports, police were called Monday night to a shooting in the area involving a 41-year-old suspect and a 30-year-old acquaintance. The shooter, who was arrested on investigation of attempted first-degree murder, told authorities he fired in self defense, and the 30-year-old acquaintance was transported to a local hospital with what's described as "minor gunshot wounds." Police believe the altercation may have stemmed from a drug deal gone bad.

However, the real hook of the story is in what police unexpectedly discovered after responding -- a marijuana grow guarded by two alligators inside a home featuring a brass stripper pole.

According to KING 5:

Investigators found evidence of a marijuana grow operation and two, five-foot long alligators, purportedly meant to protect the pot.

The sheriff's office and animal services are working to determine what to do with the alligators.

Detectives also found a brass pole in the home. The suspect's girlfriend is apparently an exotic dancer.

If that's not the definition of class, I'm not sure what is.
