A baby alligator was spotted in the 500 block of South Harvin Street in downtown Sumter on Wednesday by resident Daniel Johnson. The gator, which measured at just shy of two feet, was crossing the street into a neighbor's yard when Sumter Police Department officers Josh Christmas and Charles Conyers arrived on the scene. The officers speculate the reptile may have been caught by accident by locals fishing in the nearby Green Swamp. A fishing hook was removed from the gator's tail, and it was being released back to the swamp.
