Putting a cork on spring break (GALLERY)

Other spring breakers said the recent arrests and deputies’ constant presence will make them to tone it down.

“Probably they should have been a little more cautious,” said 19-year-old Caitlin Hughes from a community college in Texas. “I think you should stay inside, not bring attention to yourself.”

Scott Lade has lived on Miami Street for 13 years. He said the problems with spring breakers didn’t begin until large condominiums were put up next door to him.

“I saw them right when they got here and I told my wife they won’t last a week,” Lade said of the students who were arrested Monday.

Spring breakers from 11 states were arrested at the home.

“They were here for 48 hours. The Sheriff’s Office is doing a great job,” Lade said. “But next week there’s a whole new crowd we have to deal with.”
