With a glut of vacation houses standing empty most of the year, break-ins are a perennial problem in the Catskills and Hudson Valley. But this one kinda takes the cake: A scrum of (mostly) teenagers allegedly occupied a house on Beaverkill Road in Stone Ridge for a week: drinking, hosting live bands, and even stealing the homeowner's car and abandoning it in midtown Kingston.
Three people have been arrested: 16-year-old Jade Terwillegar of Connelly, 18-year-old Marshall Joslin of Stone Ridge, and 20-year-old Jeremy Bennett of Port Ewen.
The Times Herald-Record has an account of the debauchery, including this tidbit:
Police said they solved a second case when they busted the party house. Terwillegar had been partying for so long that someone reported her as a missing person.
