Large snake caught in Caldwell shopping center parking lot

CALDWELL, Idaho (KBOI) -- Some suspects can be slippery.

And then there's this guy.

Caldwell Police says a boa constrictor was spotted at a Caldwell area shopping center, slithering its way under a vehicle and into a motorist's engine compartment.

A CPD officer was able to remove the snake from the vehicle.

What was the snake doing there in the first place? No one really knows. Caldwell Police says the officer released the snake to a man who was willing to care for it.
