Florida Authorities Identify Teens Who Broke Into $8 Million Mansion To Throw Party

An $8 million home near Seaside, Florida was reportedly burgled and damaged over the weekend. Hundreds of teenagers were seen fighting and partying at the luxury home.
According to the New York Post, on June 18, Florida lawmakers identified some intruders from the illegal party.
Walton County Sheriff's spokeswoman Corey Dobridnia told the publication that although no names have been released, investigators are working to determine who stole priceless sports memorabilia and a video game console from the home.

"It could take this family weeks to figure out what's missing," Dobridnia said. "It will be difficult for them to know exactly what was taken."
Dobridnia said the homeowners were out of town when the party took place; however, someone kept watch over the house until Friday afternoon.
"The family left town," Dobridnia said. "But someone was in the house by Friday afternoon."
Dorbridnia also called the videos of the incident disturbing and encouraged partygoers to come forward.
"If you were involved, we would encourage you to come forward and take responsibility," Dobridnia said. "The videos are both disturbing and insightful... All these kids wanted to brag about breaking into that house and showing no respect for anyone but themselves."

The underage teenagers are also said to have tried on the owners' clothes and jewelry in the house. The lakefront neighborhood is approximately 130 miles west of Tallahassee.
According to local police, flyers promoting the illegal party were circulating in the area prior to the party.
The Walton County Sheriff's Office released a statement on Facebook, saying several viral videos show underage boys and girls participating in fights and underage drinking. Police were called early Saturday morning after receiving a noise complaint, according to the press release.
“An open house is against the law. An open house in a house that you break into is a burglary. Early Saturday morning, the Walton County Sheriff's Office was called by Security to Blackwater Street in Aquarelle over a noise incident," the statement said. "By the time MPs arrived, as you can imagine, most of the people at the party had left the scene."

Police confirmed the videos were shared on social media sites including Instagram and Snapchat. The videos showed several teenagers turning the living room into a boxing ring.
"Since then, videos with some highlights have been circulating on Snapchat, Instagram and other social media platforms. Among them were some of those in attendance who turned the foyer of the $8 million home into a boxing ring," the statement continued. “Here's some more information; Snapchat is not private. You might think that's how it is when you're a teenager or someone in your early 20s and not yet worldly. Your friends will sniff. Word gets around. You will be tagged in pictures on the Gram.”
The Walton County Sheriff's Department confirmed that the intruders stole items from the home and caused damage to property during the party.
"Apart from the damage caused and items stolen, it's a complete breach of someone's home that can't be quantified. The feeling of knowing someone has gone into your closet, tried on your clothes, and used your bathroom doesn't come with a dollar amount," the statement said. “Especially where you should feel safe. Before anyone says that these are just “kids are kids,” we want you to ask yourself how you would feel if your home was ransacked and your sense of peace and security stolen from you.”
The statement ended with a stern warning to those who might feel inclined to defend the teens' actions, urging everyone involved in the illegal party to come forward and reporting those who also attended.
"Before you say, 'You might not have known,' ask yourself whether what took place was appropriate (or legal) regardless of whether they had permission to be there (which they didn't have)" , the statement said. "Before you apologize for these children, ask why they thought they could do this in the first place. Here is our question; if you were there, know someone who was there, were invited, know who distributed the flyer for the party (yes, we know that too), you will be asked to get in touch. Do yourself a favor and let us know. Come in and give us the information we need to apprehend those responsible. So what is "the train"?"
An open house is against the law. An open house in a house that you break into is a burglary.
Early Saturday…
