PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Deputies in Palm Beach County made an unusual arrest near a home improvement store.

The sheriff's office tweeted Monday morning that an 8-foot python was found slithering outside a Lowe's in Lake Park.

Pictures show a deputy wrangling the reptile and placing it in a sack.

PBSO said "the trespasser was removed from the premises and taken to a local rescue in Loxahatchee."

Also, they wished the python "good luck, but no bond."
