Mountain View police announced Thursday morning that four more people have been arrested in connection with the illicit parties and arson fire that ravaged a house on Fordham Way last month.
The investigation is ongoing.
According to police, a series of drug- and alcohol-fueled illicit parties at a house in the 1700 block of Fordham Way went awry, leaving the home seriously damaged when a March 16 fire started by three juveniles burned out of control. The home's residents were away on vacation at the time.
The house was also burglarized and an Audi A4 stolen, said Jaeger. The car was later recovered in San Francisco.
Most of the teens involved are students at Mountain View High School, with a few from Alta Vista High School and Foothill College, he said.
A juvenile knew the family was gone, broke in and had a party the weekend of March 7, Jaeger said, with more parties to follow.
Police are asking for the public's help in gathering information about the party. Anyone with a tip may call 650-903-6395. Anonymous tips may also be sent via text to 274637 -- include 'mvtips' in the body of the message.
