    After all the recent bear sightings, it's time for a scaly visitor to take the stage. New London police received a call about an alligator sighting Saturday afternoon.

    Police arrived at Broad Street and Georgiana Street around 12:30 Saturday afternoon. There they found a three-and-a-half-foot-long alligator running down the sidewalk, New London police said.

    Officers managed to trap the alligator in a grassy area on the side of the road. A New London Animal Control officer and the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection caged the alligator and removed it.
