A Joliet man lifted the hood of his truck and solved the mystery of his neighbor's missing python. It was coiled around the truck's engine.

The snake had apparently crawled up there to get warm. It had disappeared two weeks earlier. The man called Joliet police for help in removing the python.

Officer Micheal Reilly worked for about an hour to free the snake. It has been returned to its owner.
