New York State Troopers assisted DEC officers in removing a dangerous snake from a home in Perry. On Wednesday, March 27, Department of Environmental Protection Police arrested Darrell Alan Boyd, age 39, of Perry. The arrest came after an investigation into reports that Boyd possessed a Burmese Python, which is a dangerous constrictor snake.

The snake was safely removed from Boyd's residence and was taken by the DEC Bureau of Wildlife in Buffalo.

Boyd will appear in the Village of Perry Court in May.
