A while back, I was talking with someone in our office about some of the crazy stuff that goes on in Amarillo.

She had brought up a story she read about and my response was, "only in Amarillo".

She died laughing, and Only In Amarillo became a thing for us here. Well, this story right here is a PRIME example of one of those stories. Buckle up, this one gets weird.

On May 25, Amarillo Police executed a search warrant on a man's home. What were they looking for? Evidence of child pornography possession and distribution.

They seemed to find what they were looking for as they arrested a 19-year-old man and charged him with a whopping nine counts of possession of child pornography.

This was bad enough, but as police were searching for that, they stumbled upon something else.

Authorities found boxes full of equipment such as steel claws in the home. What exactly would one need with steel claws?

Well, when you pair it up with the antibiotics, and different drugs and medications normally used to rile up chickens and roosters to fight you can start to piece the puzzle together.

Oh yeah, they found 21 roosters and hens at the property as well.

You guessed it, they went in for child pornography and came out with plenty of evidence of cockfighting as well. Now charges haven't been levied on the individual as of yet for the other stuff they found. That opened up a whole new investigation.

All I can say is that's two very different, yet twisted things to walk into a home and find. I don't know how the police do it. I'd lose my head on the suspect at that point. So kudos for being able to keep your cool when discovering that kind of thing.

Oh yeah, the roosters and hens discovered are in the hands of Animal Management and Welfare, so they're in a better place now. #onlyinamarillo.
