A group of around 200 partiers broke into an $8million Florida home and turned the foyer into a boxing ring before fleeing from police.
The Walton County Sheriff’s Office was called by security to a house in Watercolor for a ‘noise complaint’ on Saturday after a large group of rowdy partiers broke in and damaged the property.
A flyer was allegedly passed around for a week on Snapchat, announcing the break-in, which the Sheriff’s Office said in its post: ‘Yes, we know about that too.’
‘This had been advertised for an entire week, so that’s going to be apart of our process is how they knew the house would be empty and where that information came from,’ Walton County Public Information Officer Corey Dobridnia told WJHG.
Once officers arrived at the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home, the group fled and was seen on Snapchat exiting the house through the backdoors.
Partiers can be seen fleeing around the inground pool into the backyard as the front doors open.
One man can be heard nervously saying: ‘What the f**k,’ while another yelled at others: ‘We got to go, we got to go!’
A group of young partiers broke into an $8million Florida home on Saturday, where they threw impromptu boxing matches (pitches), stole items, and partied the night away

Snapchat videos and photos were posted to the Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page, showing a young man trying on championship rings and what appears to be a group of teenagers posting for a large group shot, as well as two young men lounging in the home theater.
Other videos show teens screaming song lyrics and nodding their heads and jumping to a beat with the Snapchat location filter for Seaside, Florida, prepositioned over the shot.
Another video shows two men violently throwing punches at each other in a makeshift boxing match as a crowd cheers them on and videotapes the whole thing.
One of the men, who is not wearing a shirt, appears to be landing most of the punches as the one in pink shorts attempted to defend himself.

The other partiers leave a wide berth for the fighters, but can heard ohh-ing and ahh-ing as one lands a good throw.
The teens and young adults also reportedly stole items from the 6,400-square-foot home, as well as caused property damage. DailyMail.com has reached out to Walton County Sheriff’s Office for comment.
The homeowners told WJHG that they left town on Wednesday and came home Sunday to significant damage to the property, which is currently on sale.
The owners also reportedly said they would be pressing every civil and criminal charge against the partiers, according to WJHG.
Police said the homeowners were ‘not involved’ in the party plans.
The Sheriff’s Office is now reminding the public that an ‘open house party is against the law,’ especially when parties have to ‘break into’ homes to do so.
Since then, law enforcement has been coming across Snapchat videos and images circulating ‘social media platforms’ and are searching for the large group.
The Sheriff’s Office berated the ‘teenagers or someone in their early 20s’ for forgetting that ‘Snapchat isn’t private’ and that they shouldn’t believe anything is sacred.
‘You are not yet worldly. Your friends will snitch. Word gets out. You’ll be tagged in pics on the Gram,’ the Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook. ‘Also, we can subpoena Snapchat.’
Evidence also suggests the youngsters ransacked the homeowner’s rooms, including the closet, where they ‘tried on your clothes and used [the] bathroom,’ the Sheriff’s Office said.
‘It’s a complete violation of someone’s home that you can’t put a price on,’ the office wrote. ‘Especially in a place where you’re supposed to feel safe.’

The police sassily reminded the public and the parties that ‘house parties are against the law’ and asked the youngsters to turn themselves in
The office then asked the youths ‘what’s the move?’ – a common phrase to ask what the plan is – and encouraged them to come forward with any information they know.
‘DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and let us know. Come clean and give us the information we need to hold those responsible,’ it wrote.
Authorities also asked the public to refrain from using the ‘kids will be kids’ mindset and to ask oneself: ‘How you would feel if your home was ransacked and your sense of peace and security was taken from you?’ or ‘Why [the partiers] felt they could do this in the first place?’
It is unclear if any of them have been arrested or charged.
