Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Is there an alligator swimming around in Rochester’s Cascade Lake? A local woman and some kids think so.

The woman lives on the east side of the lake and called police around 8 p.m. Tuesday evening to report seeing a 3 to 4 foot alligator in the lake. She told officers her two children and some other kids told her they had seen the possible gator. She says she went to check and also spotted it in the water.

Two officers were sent to check on the report. They searched for about 40 minutes but found no sign of an alligator. 

A police spokesperson says the woman is convinced that what she saw was a real, live alligator. There was no word on whether law enforcement will be doing any more investigating.
