Fourteen teenagers who allegedly broke into a La Habra Heights mansion a while back and threw a party, causing $1 million in damage and even stealing a stuffed snow leopard, now face misdemeanor and felony charges.Los Angeles County Prosecutors announced the charges Tuesday, which range from trespassing to burglary and theft, CBSLA reported. The teens were 15 to 17 at the time of the break-in.

The Party of the Century happened back in November, when social media helped bring more than 100 teens to the 90,000-square-foot home while owner and "trucking magnate" Nick Radoi was away. The kids entered through the window and trashed the place, stealing designer suits, medieval armor, jewelry and that snow leopard.

To be fair to the teens, look at this insane, EDM-fueled promo video for the house that has lots of scantily clad women dancing in pool fountains. And also eating a buffet lunch.

An initial court hearing was scheduled for today in Pomona Juvenile Court. At least police managed to get Ol’ Snowy back. Kids, did we learn nothing from Sofia Coppola's educational film The Bling Ring?
