This wasn't a routine service call for the Livermore Police Department.
Officers on Monday responded to reports of a 6-foot-long boa constrictor in the road along the 1100 block of Big Basin Road, the department said.
Officers were able to determine that the snake belonged to a resident in the neighborhood. They later scooped it up and safely reunited it with its owner.
