LIVINGSTON - Police issued a warning to residents of Livingston after a large alligator was spotted in a drainage canal.

The eight-and-a-half-foot gator was seen in the canal just off Ohio Street within the town. Police advised residents to keep a close eye on children and small animals around ditches and drains as alligators might be hidden inside.
