A blue-green snake has been spotted in the Indian River area near the Elizabeth River, and Animal Control Officers are searching for the slithery serpent.
Animal Control has been called to the area twice -- first on Monday and then again on Tuesday -- after reports of the 6-foot-long snake surfaced, police said today.
Officers searched the 1600 block of Walnut Ave. on Monday but found nothing. They determined it's not a pet and that it's not posing a threat to residents, police said in a news release.
About 5 p.m. Tuesday, officers went back to the area after another reported sighting -- but still no snake.
Animal Control Officers will continue in their quest to capture the snake this week.
First it was blue-green, then spotted.
