Police seized a snake from a Waialua home today after someone called Crime Stoppers to report it. It is the 13th illegal reptile taken in by state officials since June 29.

State agriculture officials said it is a 3-foot, 6-inch ball python. Officers went to the home today and took the snake to the state Department of Agriculture Plant Quarantine Branch near Sand Island.

Since June 29, Department of Agriculture officials have taken in 13 illegal animals, including five snakes.

All but one of the 13 were brought into custody under the state’s amnesty program, which provides immunity from prosecution for owning or transporting an illegal animal. The other animal, a boa constrictor, was found by hunters July 4 in Waiawa.
