A damaged roof, broken merchandise, and what appeared to be vomit on the floor painted the picture of a robbery in a charity shop in Australia recently. The culprit, however, came as a huge, 19-feet long surprise.

Queensland State Police Sergeant Don Auld said that officers called to the scene found signs of a break-in at the store. “We thought a person had fallen through the ceiling because the roof panel was cut in half,” he said. He then speculated that after hitting the floor, the thief vomited and stumbled away. “That’s what we thought, anyway.”

And then the call came in: staff at the shop had spotted a 19-feet long snake in the store with a head the size of a small dog. Sergeant Auld said the snake most likely fell through the ceiling and then relieved itself on the floor.

Police called a snake catcher who relocated the snake to nearby wetlands.
