Odd Indiana News

First we have a WTF? from the South Bend Tribune:
Surveyors looking for the source of a clogged drain in southern Adams County found a 7-foot dead alligator.

"At first they thought it was a turtle in there, but then they discovered an alligator," Adams County sheriff's Deputy Larry Butler said.
It's Tax Day, and there is something under the mailbox!
The post office on South Michigan Street is back open following a bomb scare Monday morning. Police were called to the scene around 4:00am when an object was found underneath a post office drop-off box.

"In the early morning hours, a citizen was actually dropping off mail at the main Post Office, [when they] saw what they thought was a suspicious package stuffed underneath one of the mail boxes," South Bend Police Division Chief Gary Horvath told WSBT News.

Within minutes, police blocked off the parking lot. The South Bend Bomb Squad arrived a short time later.

Horvath said the department always has to be on high alert.

"Number one, it's a government facility," he said Monday. "Number two, it's tax day and some people, they don't wanna pay their taxes."
What could it be???
The package turned out to be a woman's purse.
