Group of Teens Break into Vacant Building for Party
Published November 12th, 2013
GAINESVILLE- Investigators say a group of teens broke into the vacant Oak Park Executive building on NW 13th Street and left behind a path of destruction all in the name of partying.
A group of teenagers, 14 in all, broke into an abandoned office building to have a party, complete with sex, booze, and rock n' roll.
Property managers and law enforcement found bottles, condoms... And a disco light.
Gainesville Resident, Cheryl Sudbury says all the vacant buildings in the neighborhood makes a tempting recipe for trouble for young people.
"I do see it as a bunch of kids just trying to have fun, they don't really have much places to go, which you know that's kind of sad, i always thought that Pick and Save Center should be turned into a youth center that way they do have places to go."
Four 18 year olds were arrested after Gainesville Police Officers arrived and the other 10 were taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
The 4 arrested teens were charged with felony burglary, felony criminal mischief, and possession of alcohol by a person under 21.
