Growing up, we are taught to be afraid of the boogie man or the monsters under the bed. As adults, however, we have dramatically different things to worry about. This couple met their greatest fear after what was supposed to be a quiet night out to dinner.
Mike Cox took his wife out to dinner expecting a quiet, romantic evening. While all was well at the restaurant, the fun turned to horror as soon as the couple returned home. While they left earlier that night in good spirits, they never could have imagined what they would find when they got back.
The two owned a beautiful home on a grassy piece of land in Parker, Colorado. They had recently been remodeling the house for a big move. “For the last few months we’ve been having rooms painted [and] new carpet installed,” Mike explained to Inside Edition. The fact that Mike and his wife had put so much time and money into their home is what made the incident so heartbreaking.
Expecting to find their home as they had left it, the couple pulled into the driveway. What they saw shook them to their cores – hundreds of teenagers were partying, drinking, and vandalizing their property.
Mike immediately called the police and informed them of the under-aged drinking. The horrific scene continued to unfold before his very eyes.
“It just slowly built into 300 kids standing on our furniture, throwing beer cans, beer bottles, squirting champaign all over our house,” the man shared, with more than a twinge of resentment in his tone. The damage caused by the teens was unimaginable. The total property damage added up to well over ten thousand dollars.
So where did the teenagers come from? We often hear of kids throwing parties while their parents are away, but this was not the case for the Cox couple. Instead, some devious teens got the idea from the internet. They found the house’s listing for $1,500,000 and assumed that the property was empty. They planned a massive party that would have included even more teens if Mike had not returned home to stop them.
Understandably, Mike does not feeling like cutting these teenagers any slack. “I want them prosecuted, I want them arrested, I want them to have to pay for the damage that they’ve done,” he calmly stated.
Now it is up to the teenagers to take responsibility for their actions. They documented their behavior on many forms of social media, so it shouldn’t be hard for the police to track down those responsible.
In a world of so many people and possibilities, it is important to teach our children respect – for other people and for their property.
