gecko escape

DISTURBANCES

A loose leopard gecko created a frightening situation for a Main Street woman Tuesday night when it got into her downtown apartment and hid beneath her bed, police said. Officers responded at 9:12 p.m. to the residence, where they found the lizard and placed it into a bag. The pet was later returned to its owners, who came to the police station and told police they didn’t know how the gecko escaped from their home.
