State authorities alleged he posted an advertisement in October of 2015 for three alligators on the website hoobly.com. They were on sale for $200 each but the report alleges he sold them for $100. The advertisement said the animals were 2 feet to 3.5 feet in length and listed a telephone number, according to a court records.
The report states that Taylor was a suspect in another case involving alligators in 2014 but there wasn’t enough evidence to continue the investigation and it was terminated. The report alleges Taylor told authorities that he knew the laws regarding alligators because he was informed of them during the prior investigation.
