INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Indiana Conservation Officers were investigating reports of a possible alligator sighting on the shores of a pond outside The Pyramids on the far northwest side of Indianapolis.

Indiana Conservation Officers were assisted by Hoosier Wildlife Care and Cassidy Turley Management team on a perimeter search of the retention pond at 3500 DePauw Blvd. in Indianapolis. Sonar was also used to search the pond.

As of now, there are no current indications of an alligator living in the area. This does not eliminate the possibility of ones existence.

Alligators have been found in Indiana waters in years past. This is commonly cause by people releasing them from captivity.

Officers have had three reports of alligator sightings at the pond since June 7th, with the most recent report from Tuesday.

There were previous reports of the creature being seen both in and out of the water.
