NORCO, LA (WVUE) -

Deputies woke up a woman early Friday morning after they spotted something suspicious lurking in her driveway.

The Norco alligator was discovered around 4:15 a.m. on Fourth St. by members of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The little critter looked frightened and fatigued. One brave deputy was able to wrangle the gator and take it to safety. 

"It was amazing to watch them capture and relocate," wrote resident Rebecca Case. "I am thankful I live in St. Charles Parish where our officers go above and beyond their job description."
