Florida teens threw a wild house party in an $8 million mansion – complete with boxing matches. However, the teenagers posted videos of the raucous rager on social media – which were discovered by local police.
Early Saturday morning, approximately 200 teens and young adults gathered at a home in the community of Watercolor – near Seaside, Florida. Authorities said the homeowners – who were out of town during the shindig – did not give consent to the party and didn’t appear to have any connection to the teens who threw the wild party.
Videos posted to social media show an audacious bash inside a ritzy mansion – where underage people were drinking alcohol. The teens even made a boxing ring in the home’s foyer with onlookers cheering for their favorite amateur boxer.
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a noise complaint because of the loud music. When deputies arrived, the partygoers immediately dispersed.
While the police didn’t apprehend any of the main suspects who threw the wild party, authorities raked through social media to find party attendees had uploaded incriminating videos to Snapchat and Instagram.
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office said that an open house party is “against the law.” The department added that breaking into a home for a party is considered a “burglary.”
“Here’s another sliver of information; Snapchat isn’t private. You may think it is if you are a teenager or someone in their early 20s and you are not yet worldly,” the Walton County Sheriff’s Office warned the teens on Facebook. “Your friends will snitch. Word gets out. You’ll be tagged in pics on the Gram. Also, we can subpoena Snapchat.”
The police presented the partygoers with a proposal.
“Here’s our ask; 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,” the police department wrote. “DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and let us know. Come clean and give us the information we need to hold those responsible. So, what’s ‘the move’?”
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office posted photos and videos of the Florida party. One photo showed a teen seemingly taking a selfie with a handful of gold rings that were apparently found in the home.
