Florida lawmakers have identified some of the rowdy revelers who broke into an $8 million mansion and threw a wild, unauthorized house party, authorities said Wednesday.
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office has “identified many of the children” rampaging at the Blackwater Street mansion in watercolor early Saturday, where the rioting partygoers staged a boxing match in a foyer while drinking alcohol and playing loud music.
No names were released while investigators work to determine who stole items from the home, including sports memorabilia and a video game console, sheriff’s spokesman Corey Dobridnia told The Post.
“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.”
The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom property, which is listed on Zillow for $7,950,000, was largely vandalized by an estimated 250 people who attended the party, Dobridnia said.
The “very down to earth” family living there have two children under the age of 10 and will face charges at the unauthorized house party, which has been advertised on social media for at least five days, Dobridnia said.
“The family left town, but someone was in the house as of Friday afternoon,” she said, adding that a back door was broken into before the home was taken over.
“If you were involved, we would encourage you to come forward and take responsibility,” Dobridnia continued. “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.”
Some of the partygoers have been identified by their parents, school resource officials or other local sheriff’s offices, she said. As of Wednesday morning, there had been no arrests.
The homeowners, meanwhile, feel hurt after the illegal house party, authorities said.
“You can replace their stuff, but you can’t replace the calm after kids go to their bathrooms and try on their clothes,” Dobridnia said. “An invasion of privacy cannot come with a price, and it is.”
