News from Patch sites in the area.

Deer, raccoons and squirrels are fairly common sights in Lawrenceville backyards.

But an alligator?

The three-foot-long reptile has made itself a home along Dunlin Lake, not far from a residential neighborhood. 

Muhammed Kabir told WSB-TV he's seen the alligator on the banks of the lake for a good two years now.

The Department of Natural Resources says the animal, which most likely was a pet released into the wild, does not pose a threat due to its small size.

Trailers Burglarized at Harbins Park Construction Site -- Dacula Patch

Two construction trailers and two storage containers were damaged during a recent burglary at the Harbins Park construction site.

A contractor called police after arriving at work on Sept. 17 and discovering the damage. According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the burglar or burglars cut the metal surrounding the lock on one of the trailers in order to access the metal security bar and open the door. The only items missing from the trailer were a computer monitor and trash bags form two trash bag boxes.

The lock on the second mobile office was cut, but the building did not appear to have been entered.

The contractor advised that the burglar or burglars had also unsuccessfully attempted to cut the lock on one of the company’s storage containers. Another storage container, owned by a different contractor, was entered. The only item listed as missing was a generator.

The burglary is believed to have taken place sometime between 2 p.m. on Sept. 15 and 8 a.m. on Sept. 17.  

The case is listed as active.
