Police serving a search warrant at a home in Santa Ana on Wednesday discovered as many as 400 snakes inside.
Officers served the search warrant at the home in the 2900 block of Fernwood Drive after the Police Department’s animal services section received complaints from neighbors about a foul odor coming from the home.
Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said about 300 to 400 pythons were discovered inside. Some of the pythons were alive, some dead and decaying.
