San Diego Police Officer Charged with Vandalizing His Home after Foreclosure

San Diego police offier Robert Acosta and his wife Monique are in hot water: the couple have been charged with removing items from a foreclosed property illegally. If they are convicted, each could fact up to four years in state prison.

San Diego Metropolitan Credit Union was the lender that foreclosed on the Acostas. The day after they moved out, the credit union’s representative went to the property and found that the walls and carpets had been spray-painted, shrubs were tossed into the pool and attached appliances, fixtures and doors had been removed, later to be found in rented storage space.

While the prosecutor opined that the home “looked like a war scene,” the Acosta’s attorney said they had merely removed property that belonged to them, including a mini-bar that was extracted using sledgehammers.

The Acostas might never have been prosecuted except that a neighbor who witnessed their move-out photographed it. As if the alleged assault on the property weren’t enough, one of the photos shows Monique Acosta chopping down a tree in her former backyard while her child watched.
