    in order to charge "Destruction of Evidence"
    you need to have a predicate charge and the
    evidence must be material and there must be
    a proceeding in place.

     No person, knowing that a criminal trial or proceeding or an investigation by a duly constituted prosecuting authority, law enforcement agency, grand jury or legislative committee of this state is pending or is about to be instituted, shall:
       (a) Alter, destroy, conceal, or remove any record, document, or thing with the purpose to impair its verity or availability in such proceeding or investigation; or
       (b) Make, present, or use any record, document, or thing, knowing it to be false.
       (2) Any person who violates any provision of this section shall be guilty of a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
    In order to charge theft, it's got to be someone elses property that he intends to permanently deprive them of, he gave it back.

    in order to charge vandalism, it has to be permanent damage to someone else's property. as a married couple, most things are community property.
