OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Officers in Overland Park got an exciting call around midnight Tuesday.

Officers were dispatched to a home to round up snakes in the basement of a home.

“Meanwhile in Overland Park, we are still rounding up snakes,” Overland Park officer John Lacy said. “This one was in a basement of a home. Again, we do NOT have a snake problem in OP, your kids are safe indoors.”

Lacy told FOX4 that the family was freaking out and did not want to wait until an animal officer was on duty. He also said the officer who captured the snake had experience handling them.

A little over a week ago, Overland Park police responded to a home after the mailman called to report a ball python wrapped around a mailbox.
