The golf course has cement in its drains, mold on the walls and a caved in floor. Don't even ask about the Jacuzzi

Vandals Cause $200,000 in Damage to Foreclosed Home

A realtor called it the worst example of "intentional damage" he has seen.

Vandals trashed a bank-owned home in Huntington Beach: cement in the drains, a Jacuzzi left running for months, mold-splattered walls, and a caved in floor.

According to Marilyn Kalfus, of the OC Register:

    The day I went by, workers in special bodysuits and masks doing mold remediation would not allow us into the house for safety reasons. As is typical with some foreclosed homes that are found stripped and trashed, the Realtor and the bank cannot prove who did the damage. And with a lack of eyewitness accounts in these cases, police rarely get involved.

The Register also posted photos of the destruction. The 3,000-square foot, two-story home is in the Seacliff Golf Course area.

It was sold back to the bank for $1,782,214 at a foreclosure auction last year.
