Hundreds of Snakes in New York

SHIRLEY, N.Y. (AP) --
   Authorities in New York say they've found hundreds of snakes including two 6-foot Burmese pythons at an animal control officer's house.
   Local and county officials raided the home in Shirley on Thursday. Officials estimate 850 snakes were found inside two garages.
   Homeowner Richard Parrinello 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.
   Officials began investigating whether Parrinello was working while on disability from his town job.
   Authorities say he's cooperating. It's unclear if he has an attorney, and a phone listing for him can't be located.
   The snakes were being removed by the Suffolk County SPCA.
