Gator Update (Stop, Thief! Edition)

The Daily Item, Sunbury, PA - Thief drops gator during chase: "SUNBURY -- A man's attempt to shoplift a foot-long American alligator was foiled when a pet store employee chased the fleeing thief until he ditched the reptile in a yard.

A tall, hooded man snatched the alligator from a tank at Pet World near Sunbury, stuffed it into a white bag and fled the store Wednesday night. The thief ran out of the Upper Augusta Township shop clutching the bag around 7 p.m., with the worker close on his heels.

The suspect pulled the reptile from the bag and tossed it in a nearby yard on Green Street, where the employee was able to capture the alligator."
