Ten youths who allegedly broke into an unoccupied townhouse for a party that was advertised on Twitter and Facebook were arrested Friday by Tacoma police.

Neighbors reported a burglary in process at the home in the 4500 block of South Junett Street and officers arrived to find more than 20 juveniles fleeing the scene. Ten were arrested on a variety of charges ranging from burglary to obstructing justice, according to police.

As officers boarded up the home and processed the scene, several more teens arrived and were turned away.

The homeowner had called police earlier in the day to report that someone had broken out a back window and gained access to the townhouse.
