WARNER ROBINS -- A 5-foot-long alligator was safely relocated Thursday after showing up near Northrop Grumman in the vicinity of the Warner Robins Animal Control facility off Ga. 247, police said Monday.

Warner Robins Animal Control officers, with the help of training officer Kirk Lowry, were able to round the alligator up without incident and released him into a river off Ga. 96, said Tabitha Pugh, public information officer for Warner Robins police.

The officers who captured the alligator were responding to a 911 call of its sighting, Pugh said.
