Twelve teenagers were charged on Friday, Dec. 14, with second-degree criminal trespassing in relation to a party thrown at a house currently up for sale.

Jordan Irizarry, 18, of 15 Patton Drive; Jesse Boardman, 18, of 12 Ettle Lane, Greenwich; John Romano, 17, of Lyndhurst, N.Y.; Malcolm Kiplinger, 18, of 7 Old Stone Road; Jeffery Higbee, 17, of 7 Reynolds Place, Greenwich, Giles Bonner, 18, of 3 Pritchard Lane, Westport, Kristin Amato, 18, of 28 Crossbridge Circle, Marlborough, Ryan Martin, 18, of 35 Cooked Mile Road, Robert Berisha, 18, of 5 Moore St.; James Reed, 18, of 1 Waring Lane; Kyle Mangan, 18, of 4 Nickerson Lane; and Christian Watson, 17, of 15 Patton Drive, were charged after police responded to an incident on Three Wells Lane involving "loud mufflers racing up and down the street."

When officers arrived at the residence, they observed several vehicles in the driveway, one of the them matching the description of a car possibly involved in the racing. Police said as officers approached the residence, individuals were seen running around inside and others exiting into a wooded area.
