Dozens of suspected underage drinkers were detained after San Diego police broke up a party inside a vacant Bay Park home.
Neighbors called 911 around 10 p.m. Tuesday reporting loud music and possible drinking inside a home that was up for sale in the 2800-block of Chicago Street.
When police arrived, they say many of the partygoers ran and scattered.
Inside the home, officers said there was a lot of alcohol and a lot of spilled bottles.
One partygoer who said he was 18 told NBC 7 the news about the party spread through social media.
“Well we heard all about it all over Facebook, Tumblr and then just started getting messages, postings, Twitter,” he said.
“Nobody knew it was an abandoned house,” he said.
Ten to 20 people, aged 18 and older, were interviewed and released according to officials. Those under 18 will be released to their parents officers said.
There was apparently no damage to house, however, police said they found the “For Sale” removed and placed in the backyard of the property.
Investigators are trying to figure out who was behind the original message sent via social media. They’re also trying to contact a real estate agent or owner of home.
