GOODYEAR, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- The man who organized a massive party at a Goodyear million-dollar home back in February has been arrested, police say. Goodyear police arrested 21-year-old Salim Ghulam Mustafa on Friday afternoon.

“GYPD detectives work diligently to bring justice to the victims of the house party case that occurred in February. Yesterday the main organizers of the party were arrested,” tweeted Goodyear Police Department. Police did not say if there were other people arrested for the crime.

On Feb. 21, a group of teens broke into a vacant home near Lower Buckeye Road and Sarival Avenue to host a party with drugs and alcohol. Brian Franks, a neighbor, says the house was up for sale, and he was watching it for the owner. Franks’ Ring video captured people in ski masks knocking down and moving his cameras, and teens coming by the house days leading up to the party. Ring video showed more than 150 teens at the home before three officers arrived to break the party up.

Mustafa was booked into Maricopa County Jail and faces charges of felony criminal damage, two counts of criminal trespass (first degree), disorderly conduct, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and criminal nuisance.
