Sheriff’s office foils post-prom bash at Airbnb stocked with booze, pot, stripper poles

Investigators crashed a pre-prom party for West Boca Community High students and confiscated the booze, beer and weed before the bash could get going.

A post-prom party was busted before students could even get there.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported reported that several hundred West Boca Community High School students had rented charter buses to take them to a three-story Airbnb stocked with alcohol, marijuana and stripper poles, but a county sheriff’s department got wind of it and shut it down before the students could even board the buses.

The newspaper reported that deputies found the three-story Martin County home stocked with pre-rolled marijuana joints, Jello shots and stripper poles, with the intention of having a “Jello/biking dancing contest,” Lt. Ryan Grimsdale of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said.

A West Boca school security guard tipped Martin County authorities about the party when he said he learned about it on social media, the Sun Sentinel reported. Thomas Levin, 19, who legally rented the house, told officials he had no idea who “brought all the liquor and drug paraphernalia,” according to an incident report.

No arrests were made, and the sheriff’s office did not plan to file criminal charges, the Palm Beach Post reported.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
