Miller Place Home Overrun, ASPCA Says – NBC New York

A Long Island home has been condemned and a woman is expected to be charged after more than 300 animals and 100,000 (yes, we checked twice) roaches were allegedly found on the property, officials said Tuesday.

The grotesque storyline started to play out earlier this month when firefighters were called to the Miller Place home, according to the Suffolk district attorney’s office.

It’s not clear who called or what was found at that point, but as of Tuesday, more than 300 animals, including 118 rabbits, 150 birds, seven tortoises, three snakes and 15 cats, had been tallied — along with 100,000 roaches.

The woman is expected to be charged with violating agriculture and markets law.

The ASPCA was at the scene Tuesday, and reporters were being kept a distance back because, well, you can imagine.

Additional details are expected later Tuesday. The investigation is ongoing.
