GLEN COVE - Police say a Glen Cove couple found a snake living in the walls of their rented Glen Cove house. 

The 4-foot California kingsnake was sitting in the baseboard heater of the home. 

The couple says they knew something was wrong with they noticed their dog sniffing around the baseboard earlier this month. 

The snake got away from a previous tenant over a year ago. 

Eric and Lauren Feinstein say they set the snake free before they realized it was someone's pet. 

The couple is asking anyone who sees it to turn it in to authorities.
