Hineville Police searching for alligator in Griffin Park Subdivision

Posted: Updated:
HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

Hinesville Police officers are calling it quits after the alligator they were searching for in the Griffin Park Subdivision got away on Wednesday evening.

Children playing near the pond spotted the five foot gator and told their parents.

An officer tried to catch the gator using a rag tied to a string, but that didn't work.

Officers hope to relocate the alligator at a different date.
