Missing Cobra

A king cobra on the loose in Pompton Plains? Just kidding.

Police received a phone call from a resident Tuesday about a poster for a missing snake. It said a cobra, answering to "Fang" or "King Fangson," had been missing since July 6.

When police investigated, they discovered more than a dozen posters tacked to utility poles around Colfax Drive.

The posters promised a cash reward for the return of the snake and warned that "Fang" was dangerous when provoked.

But police say that once they called the number listed on the poster they realized it was just a practical joke between two friends. And now one of the pranksters faces a court date, charged with disturbing the peace.
