Alberto Varea, age 54, of Hialeah isn't the coolest arrestee around, but we're betting he throws a mean dinner party. Yesterday Palm Beach County cops charged him with possession of the illegal tails, a second-degree misdemeanor. (He has no previous criminal record in Miami-Dade.)
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers were summoned to scene and have dubbed the crime "a major wildlife law violation."Says Lieutenant Chuck Russo: "Some people have no respect for Florida's natural resources."
