Police seek missing snake

SALEM — Police responded swiftly last night to the call of the wild as a woman complained that her boyfriend’s pet snake had escaped its cage and was loose somewhere in the apartment.

“We’ve got a car going over there,” said Lt. Scott Englehardt. He conceded that he wasn’t certain what police were expected to do in recovering the reptile. The call, from Lynde Street, came in just after 10 p.m.

There was no word as of last night on whether the snake had been found or even what sort of snake had gone missing.
