(October 10, 2018)-  Between September 9 and September 18, 2018, an ornamental alligator disappeared from the seawall of a house located in Southwest Cape Coral. The “gator” was approximately 8 feet in length, weighs over 500 pounds, and is made of copper.  It is not believed that the “gator” returned to Gainesville or left on his own free will.  Multiple suspects would have been involved in the removal due to the weight of the “gator”.
