South Carolina Homeowner Says Facebook Photos Show Teens Broke Into Home, Threw Party




A homeowner alerted police when he reportedly found pictures posted on Facebook of his daughter's teenage classmates partying in his house. The 39-year-old homeowner in Tega Cay, S.C., who wished to remain anonymous as to not embarrass his children, told WCNC-TV in nearby Charlotte that the party happened when his entire family was vacationing in July.

According to a Tega Cay Police report, the homeowner told authorities that the photos were of six teens drinking alcohol, vomiting and lying in his son's bed. (One of the photos is shown above, with the faces of the suspects intentionally obscured.)

"I'm looking at them like, 'Wait, this is my house!' They are running around doing lewd things with funnels, throwing up in the sink, passed out on the kitchen floor," the homeowner told the TV station.

He didn't know about it sooner, he said, because "the kids came back the next day and cleaned everything up." Then, three months later, he reported finding the evidence on Facebook.

"You just feel completely violated," added the homeowner. "How do you know when I am not around, and the little kids are home, when they could come do this or someone could come into your house?"

Police are still investigating it as a burglary, and have a list of suspects -- thanks to Facebook's photo tagging.

There's an even a stranger twist in another recent case involving fun-seeking youths: Two 20-year-olds in Ocala, Fla., reportedly were able to live unseen for two weeks in a tent on the roof of a shoe store.

"We had planned on bringing a TV and an Xbox and putting it under a gazebo, and getting fake grass, doing a putt-putt course," said one of the young men, Travis Rose. He was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to trespassing and stealing electricity.
