Google Earth now has another use for teens in the UK—searching for pools to party in. UK teens are reportedly using Google Earth of find homes nearby with swimming pools and then using Facebook to tell friends where to meet for the party.

The teens then “crash” the pool without permission or the knowledge of the pool owner. A police spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police reminds teens that using someone’s pool without permission is trespassing and therefore illegal.

Some home owners are returning from work or vacation to find their once clean pools littered with beer cans, trash and possibly even uninvited vermin otherwise known as teenagers.
