POMONA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have filed criminal charges against 14 teenagers who allegedly broke into a Southern California mansion while the owner was gone and held a party that caused more than $1 million in damage and losses.

Los Angeles County prosecutors announced the charges Tuesday.

Authorities say a party promoted on social media sent more than 100 teens to the mansion in La Habra Heights last November.

According to investigators, partygoers entered through a pried-open window, trashed the place and stole several pricey items including designer suits, medieval armor, jewelry and a mounted snow leopard. Much of the loot was later recovered.

The teens, who are 15 to 18 years old, face misdemeanor and felony charges ranging from trespassing to burglary and theft.
