The officers arrived at the residence and discovered a 6 1/2-foot python under the woman's bed.
"The citizen couldn't explain how the snake got into her home," the post said.
The officers captured the python in a bucket and took it to a nearby zoo, where veterinarians estimated it was about 2 years old. The snake was given some food and determined to be in good health.
The snake is believed to be an escaped pet.
