A 5 foot alligator that was reported stolen from its enclosure on Mudham Road has now been found.
The owner of the alligator found the reptile on his property on Tuesday and it was safely returned to its pen.
Todd Crocker called authorities last Friday after noticing 1 of his 3 alligators was gone.
Investigators found some suspicious tire tracks near the alligator pen, suggesting it could have been stolen rather than it slipping out of its enclosure.
Officials said Crocker has the necessary permits to raise snakes and alligators on his property on Mudham Road, between Highway 96 and Highway 231.
