STEPHENTOWN, NY – The Labor Day bash at a home in Stephentown, New York looked like the party of the century thanks to pictures and posts on Twitter.

But it’s also how the owner of the home found out about the unauthorized party.

Former NFL player Brian Holloway was at his Florida home when he discovered hundreds of teens had broken into his vacation home for the party.

Holloway said the teens spray painted graffiti, broke windows and punched holes in the walls, causing about $20,000 worth of damage.

He is now using those posts from social media to track down the teens responsible.

Holloway posted the pictures to his helpmesave300.com website, hoping the teens will be held accountable, but also hopes to help them understand the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
