NOTICE: THE TTPS’ PHOTO OF THE ARMADILLO CARCASSES ARE POSTED BELOW
A Rio Claro couple has been arrested for possession of protected animals and marijuana.
The suspects were held after officers executed a warrant and found four packages of cannabis weighing 285 grams, $19,500, a small scale, and transparent wrapping.
Two armadillo carcasses were also found at the residence.
They have since been charged for possession of animals listed in the Third Schedule of the Conservation of Wildlife Act, and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
