Snakes Stolen From Home

A 6-foot boa constrictor and 10 other snakes were stolen during a house burglary in West Midlands, England. 

Police Officers told BBC News the offenders put the reptiles, which included corn snakes and a 4-foot Kingsnake, into an empty cage and cloth sack.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "None of the snakes is believed to be dangerous, but all have special dietary needs and are likely to die if left without the necessary care."
