Charges four, croc still nil
By DARRYN NUFER
POLICE believe Rockhamp- ton's stolen crocodile is still alive.
They have charged a fourth person over the theft of a 1.2m freshwater crocodile from Rockhampton Zoo last Satur- day morning.
Yesterday a 23-year-old man charged with stealing the croc appeared in Rockhampton Mag- istrates Court for other matters which were adjourned.
He will appear at a later date on all charges.
Rockhampton CIB Senior Constable Andrew Anderson said the man was helping police with their investigations.
"We've received information suggesting it (crocodile) is still alive,'' Senior Constable Ander- son said.
Earlier this week, two 20- year-old women were charged over the theft, along with an- other 23-year-old man.
Rockhampton City Council's parks director Tom Wyatt yes- terday pleaded for the croc's return.
"If anyone has it, just leave it at a spot and contact police or the council anonymously so we can pick it up.''
Anyone with information about the croc should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Rockhampton police on 4932 1500.
