Snakes and Crime

In the news this morning there was a case where deputies near Kansas City served warrants at a rural farm that was described as the "Home Depot of stolen property," Property recovered included light farm equipment, vehicles, and six full railroad cars. One railroad container was filled with unopened new appliances.

A residence at the scene was also searched and deputies found a python snake running loose in the home.

The is reminiscent of the story of the Snakeman in my book A Park Ranger's Life: Thirty Two Years Protecting Our National Parks. In that case we were serving search and arrest warrants at a residence where our suspect allowed a five foot boa constrictor free reign of the house even though he as his wife had a new born baby.
