It is probably one of the most bizarre basement discoveries in Dutchess County.  

Department of Environmental Conservation officers were called out to a LaGrangeville home where they say they found several sharks swimming in an above ground pool installed in the basement. Seven live sandbar sharks were seized, along with two dead leopard sharks and one dead hammerhead shark .

The investigation continues. The sharks were transported to the Long Island Aquarium for holding until the case is closed.
