Crews Search Lagoon After Alligator Sighting Reported

Crews were seen searching a Chicago lagoon after police said they received reports of a possible alligator in the water Tuesday. 

Chicago Police Spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the department was alerted to the potential sighting in the Humboldt Park lagoon Tuesday afternoon.

“Weve [sic] notified animal control but have not confirmed this is a legitimate call as of yet,” Guglielmi tweeted. 

Police were responding to the scene to “give general safety tips should this be a legitimate incident,” he added.

The Chicago Park District could not immediately be reached for comment on the matter.
