Hundreds of Snakes Found at Suburban NY Man's Home

SHIRLEY, N.Y.
Authorities in New York say they have found hundreds of snakes, including two 6-foot Burmese pythons, at the Long Island home of an animal control officer.

Local and county officials raided the home in Shirley on Thursday. Officials estimate 850 snakes were found inside two garages.

Homeowner Richard Parinello is a Brookhaven town animal control officer. He faces charges of owning the pythons and violating town codes by running a business at his home and without a permit.

Newsday (http://bit.ly/18e8UfJ ) reports officials began investigating whether Parinello was working while on disability from his town job.

Authorities say he is cooperating. It was not clear if he has an attorney and a phone listing for Parinello could not immediately be located.

The snakes were being removed by the Suffolk County SPCA.
