Deputies found no underage drinkers at the party on Shipwatch Lane, but neighbors had complained about illegal parking. The property manager asked deputies to stand by during the eviction, according to Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Wendy Ammons.
That incident was in a gated community.
The Miami Street location is just off U.S. Highway 98 and easily accessible. A neighbor estimated that the rent for the large house was about $10,000 for a week.
Bags of garbage lined the curb in front of the house Tuesday morning, and pool toys and collegiate towels lay on the balcony.
The interior was littered with empty beer cans, liquor bottles and funnels for chugging alcohol, according to sheriff‘s Maj. AJ Smith. Holes had been punched in the walls and it appeared some people had urinated on the floor.
“Our landlord came over last night and told us about it. We didn’t believe him at first,” said 21-year-old Jake Magary, a junior at Miami University in Ohio who is staying in a condominium on Miami Street.
“(The arrest on Miami Street) makes us less prone to invite people from the beach over,” Magary said. “I feel sorry for them. It sucks.”
