WOODSIDE — Police scooped up a slithery suspect inside a Queens warehouse Tuesday morning — a four-foot black corn snake.
“The snake was black, about 1.5 meters,” said Tony Lin, 54, who works in Chinese importing business XD Trading Co. that's based at the address.
“It was scary. When I saw him, he was in the office. He was moving in the corner near the wall."
Lin said it took police about two hours to corral the reptile, which is not venomous.
No one was injured in the incident.
The snake was taken to Animal Care and Control in Manhattan. The organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It was unclear how the snake got into the warehouse.
