A gatecrasher whose teenage gang caused £20,000 worth of damage during a house party has been warned he is on his last chance for freedom.
Jordan McLean, 19, and his friends ran amok in a schoolgirl’s home when she held a party when her parents had gone out.
McLean was ordered to carry out 240 hours’ unpaid work after he admitted failing to successfully complete a similar previously-imposed order.
Sheriff William Wood said: “If you breach it again you are almost certain to go to a young offenders institute. Turn up and get the work done.”
McLean, of Union Street, Perth, changed his plea midway through a trial to admit damaging the bannister and causing more than £600 of damage during the wrecking spree on July 16 2016.
The house was so badly damaged the family were forced to move out while extensive repairs and a massive clean-up operation were carried out.
He also admitted smashing a window at McDonald’s in Perth on August 19 last year.
Perth Sheriff Court heard how the gang – aged from 15 to 20 – caused chaos after turning up uninvited and rampaging through the family home in Perthshire.
An insurance company had paid out £20,500 to repair the damage.
The court heard how the gang smashed mirrors, flooded floors, hurled flour around floors and furnishings, kicked in a shed, threw food and drinks around the whole house, kicked holes in the walls, ripped a shower curtain, broke furniture with a golf club, slashed walls and doors with a knife, damaged a garden bench, a record deck and a freezer.
