19-foot python mistaken for burglar
AUSTRALIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Employees at a charity store in Australia got quite the scare Wednesday morning after a burglar that ransacked the shop a day before slithered out of hiding--literally.
The 19-foot python showed up Wednesday morning, winding its way through the racks of a Queenstown shop, solving a bit of a mystery in the process.
On Tuesday, police were called out to the shop to investigate a break-in.
They found a hole in the ceiling, several broken items, and a pool of smelly, vomit-like liquid.
They now think the snake got in through the ceiling, fell, and then made a mess.
It's been relocated to nearby wetlands.
