STEPHENTOWN, N.Y., Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Six people face trespassing and theft charges in the party break-in of former New England Patriots tackle Brian Holloway's home, police said.

The six suspects, ages 17 to 21, turned themselves in at the Rensselaer County, N.Y., Sheriff's office, police said in a statement Thursday.

A 19-year-old was arrested for "organizing, advertising, and providing alcohol for the party" at Holloway's Stephentown, N.Y., home and faces two felony charges -- including third-degree burglary -- and two misdemeanors, the statement said.

Three others face felony grand larceny charges for stealing a granite eagle statue, while another two are accused of trespassing and providing alcohol to children, CNN said.

Holloway was in Tampa, Fla., when an estimated 300 high school students held a flash party at the vacant home Aug. 31. He said on Twitter five teens helped him clean up his house after the melee.

Holloway said he tracked down the names of about 100 of the partygoers through Twitter.

"The technology they used to get the word out [about the party] is the exact same technology I'm using to put the brakes on things like this happening again," he said.
