“I reside in one of the older homes on base and from time to time we may have a few problems that will occur like any housing community,” she said.  “Recently, my son found a snake in the kitchen that went under the refrigerator.”

 

The resident said that her husband and sons removed the snake without any harm and the next day she immediately contacted Robins Housing and informed them of what they had found.
