Just wanted to ask something about this use of と at the end of a sentence that I came across in a visual novel.

白い彫像が落ちているのだと思った.
プールの守り神みたいなものが、鎮座しているんだと

Would I be correct in interpreting this と as something along the lines as というように? So the sentence would mean something like "In a way to suggest something like a god of the pool is enshrined "

Any help much appreciated and thanks in advance

It's easy:

プールの守り神みたいなものが、鎮座しているんだと(思った)

So the second appearance of 思った is omitted, because it is obvious.

Or if you like,

"白い彫像が落ちているのだ", I thought, "プールの守り神みたいなものが、鎮座しているんだ"

Because the rhetorical vibe is somewhat alike.
