A Springfield teen faces multiple charges after a relative’s home allegedly was found trashed and a car came up missing, according to a police report.

Springfield police officers were sent to a home about 12:45 p.m. Saturday in the 1100 block of Robin Road on a report of suspicious activity. A neighbor told police multiple teenagers were seen at the home and blankets were covering the windows. He also said the neighbor was away and no one was supposed to be inside the home.

Officers found the back door unsecured and entered to find it in “complete disarray,”according to a police report.

“There was food thrown everywhere, eggs smashed against the walls, numerous amounts of liquor bottles on tables and floors, broken glass, marijuana roaches, condoms and furniture completely moved from rooms,” the police report says.

The victim’s family member told police a house key, a car and two sets of car keys were all missing. An SUV reportedly kept circling the block around the house and police later stopped the vehicle. The teen passengers told police one of their friends allegedly had a party at the home with about 40 to 60 people.

Police then found the missing car at the suspect’s home and arrest warrants were issued for both burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.
