CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Police made a wild catch at a budget hotel in Pinellas County Thursday.
Clearwater Police responded to a call of a "suspicious subject" hanging out near the front of the rooms at Super 8 on U.S. 19. When police arrived, they spotted a small alligator roaming outside rooms 114 and 115.
It’s a jungle out there sometimes. That’s what Officer Bingham found out today when the manager of the Super 8 on U.S. 19 called about a suspicious subject hanging out in front of Rooms 114 and 115. The critter was relocated to a much more suitable location — a nearby lake. pic.twitter.com/YTb3eeCVpS
