The house is near a retention pond and Kramer said they had seen the gator in or near the water before.
Kramer said the property manager called a trapper but since the gator had gone back into the pond it was not concerned a threat.
Others residents in the neighborhood have posted on social media before about seeing gators wandering around the streets in front of their homes.
