Goodwill Donations workers got more than they bargained for after unpacking a donation box filled with books and one four-foot slithering snake.

The Stafford Sheriff’s Department in Virginia announced the donation box that sprang to life in a social media post filled with Harry Potter references on Tuesday, June 18.

The snake, identified as a 4-foot-long basilisk, was found among a donation box of books, police said.

“Using his powers of persuasion, and a bit of Parseltongue, Captain Bice was able to safely remove the snake and release it back into the wild,” police said.

A photo shared by the sheriff’s office showed Bice using snake tongs to keep the snake at a distance.

The sheriff’s office did not reveal the species of the “Slytherin suspect seized” at the store, but said it was likely a reptile in search of shade amid the heatwave impacting the region.

“With the rise in temperatures recently everyone is trying to beat the heat, even the local wildlife,” police said.
