SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A San Diego police officer and his wife face felony charges after allegedly trashing their foreclosed home in Riverside County.
Robert Conrad Acosta and his wife Evette have been charged with vandalizing and burglarizing the six-bedroom house in Murrieta, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported.
The damage includes stones smashed off the facade, dye poured on the carpet, wiring torn out of the walls, uprooted trees thrown in the swimming pool and a missing garage door.
Many of the home's appliances, such as air conditioners, were stolen and recovered from storage lockers rented by the couple.
The couple were arguing with a credit union over an imminent foreclosure.
Prosecutors say they could face up to four years in prison if convicted.
