GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) - Granite City police say a woman has received a baby python in the mail that someone purchased with her credit card number.

Delores Gavin tells KMOV-TV (https://bit.ly/1sKH3BY ) a FedEx delivery man left the snake at her front door Tuesday. The $100 spotted python was sent from a reptile dealer in California and is a common pet among reptile lovers.

Gavin says she screamed when she found the snake, which she didn’t order. The reptile dealer has agreed to take the snake back and refund $100 charged to Gavin’s credit card.

Police say they’re investigating the possible identity theft.
