POLICE are investigating after a four foot snake was dumped on Sandy Lane West today, Tuesday.
Officers say a resident saw a man throw a cardboard box onto waste ground next to the old Fordton Leisure site.
The snake was then found by police shortly after midnight.
PC Julia West, from Warrington Central NPU, said: "It was pitch black and a member of the public saw the box being thrown and thought it was suspicious.
"The snake then came out of the box and police were called."
It has been handed to the RSPCA and is not thought to be dangerous.
The breed is currently being determined with further information expected today.
Police added the man was not found.
