CHESTERFIELD, Va., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A Virginia business owner said he discovered a large boa constrictor in his supply room and police said a second snake may be on the loose.

Chris Hodges, owner of One Hour Heating and Air in Chesterfield, said he walked into his supply room and spotted the snake "curled up in a small ball," WTVR, Richmond, Va., reported Thursday.

"It was laying on a piece of equipment taking a nap," Hodges said.

Animal control officers said the red tail boa was 6-feet to 8-feet long. Police said the snake likely slithered to the business from some nearby woods and a second snake may be on the loose.

Police said they are hoping the snake's owner will come forward.
