Teens break into $11m house, hold party and boxing match

·3-min read

A bunch of teens broke into a multi-million dollar home and threw a wild house party before sharing videos on social media which show the rowdy scenes.

Videos shared by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office in the US state of Florida show dozens of partygoers trying on clothes and jewellery belonging to the property's owner, and engaging in a boxing match as they danced and partied.

Police arrived at the $11m Florida mansion on Saturday after receiving a noise complaint, they revealed in a statement on Facebook.

But when they arrived, most people had already fled the scene. Online videos seen after the incident show the extent of their wrongdoings.

"Videos are circulating on Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media platforms with some of the highlights including some people [turning] the foyer of the US$8 million home into a boxing ring," police said.

"An open house party is against the law. An open house party in a home you break into is a burglary. Before making an excuse for these kids, ask why they felt they could do this in the first place."

Authorities revealed some items had been stolen and damage had been caused. However, they did not reveal to what extent.

They also confirmed homeowners didn't consent to the massive bash, and seemingly had no connection to the young people who attended, Fox News reported.

Although no arrests have been announced, police are relying on the circulating videos taken at the party to help identify those involved.

"Snapchat isn't private," the police warned. "We can subpoena Snapchat."

Videos show partygoers smiling and having a good time while others seem a little more incriminating.

One photo shows a male taking a selfie wearing a handful of gold rings he found in the home. Others show teens lounging around on furniture.

Apart from the damage caused, Florida authorities said the break-in is "a complete violation of someone's home."

"Especially in a place where you're supposed to feel safe," they added.

Police are now appealing for anyone with knowledge to come forward.

"If you were there, know someone who was there, were invited, knows who circulated the flyer for the party (yes, we know about that too) you are asked to come forward. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and let us know," they said.

"Come clean and give us the information we need to hold those responsible."
