Teens cause $1M damage

Authorities have filed criminal charges against 14 teenagers who allegedly broke into a Southern California mansion and held a party that caused more than $1 million in damage and losses, including the theft of a stuffed snow leopard.

Los Angeles County prosecutors announced the charges Tuesday.

Authorities say the party promoted on social media in November brought more than 100 teens to the La Habra Heights mansion while the owner was away.

According to investigators, partygoers entered through a window, trashed the place and stole several pricey items including designer suits, medieval armour, jewelry and the mounted leopard. Much of the loot was later recovered.

The teens, who are 15 to 18 years old, face misdemeanour and felony charges ranging from trespassing to burglary and theft.
