BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Bethlehem police say they captured a 3-foot-long alligator after a resident spotted it going over a waterfall.

Police say the alligator hid in deep water beneath the falls in the Monocacy Creek several times before Officer Eric Yeakel captured it Sunday.

A local reptile expert confirmed it was an alligator and took it to a reptile store for treatment. Bethlehem police are seeking the public's help in determining how it ended up in the creek. - AP
