LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The Longview Police Department said Sunday that they successfully located a 16-foot Burmese python that escaped from a home in the 700 block of East Lynnwood Lane.

After causing an alert in the Longview neighborhood, the python was found in it's owners attic on East Lynnwood Lane. Animal control and firefighters cut a hole in the ceiling to get at the snake, which turned out to be extremely docile and put up no fight.

The owner had reported it out of it's tank and missing on Saturday, and the thought of it being at large did make some neighbors nervous.

The snake remains in the owner's custody for now.
