The federal agents apparently delivered the turtles to Franco (but kept the snakes on hand), along with a search warrant for his home in Monterrey Park, California. In his home, they also found a baby Morelet's crocodile, alligator snapping turtles, a common snapping turtle, and five diamond back terrapins. All of these are protected species and are illegal to casually keep as pets.
According to court documents, Franco has admitted that, previously, he has also received a total of 20 king cobras in two prior shipments sent to his house that slipped by the authorities. All of the snakes were dead on arrival. The moral of this story is "Please, for the love of Mother Nature, stop mailing venomous snakes."
If convicted, Franco faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and, presumably, the lifelong ire of animal activists everywhere.
