‘Friends will snitch’: Florida officials search for teens who broke into $8 million mansion to throw party

Florida officials are searching for teens who broke into a $8 million mansion to throw a party and host a boxing match. 

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office were called early Saturday morning for a noise complaint at a home, the office said on Facebook.

“When they got there, there were about 200 kids,” Walton County Sheriff’s Office PIO Corey Dobridnia told WJHG.

When deputies arrived, most of the people who attended the party in Santa Rosa Beach had left but videos of the gathering began to circulate on Instagram, Snapchat and other social media platforms. 

USA TODAY reached out to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office for comment. 

Some of the videos showed a boxing match happening in foyer of the multi-million dollar home, the post said.

“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. Your friends will snitch. Word gets out,” the sheriff’s office said in the post.

Panama City station WJHG reports the house is currently for sale on Zillow with an asking price of $7,950,000. The owners were out of town at the time of the party and plan to press charges, the station reports. 

“Before anyone says, this is just ‘kids being kids’, we want you to ask yourself how you would feel if your home was ransacked and your sense of peace and security was taken from you?” the post asked. 

The sheriff’s office is asking for those who attended the party or know who circulated the flyer to come forward to hold those people responsible.
