What's the name of this crime?

Asked by weeveeship (4584points) July 10th, 2014

Lately, there’s been some hooligan (we don’t know who) who has been going into stores, ripping open packages, and leaving. I am pretty sure that this is a crime, but don’t know the technical legal term for this sort of crime. It’s not robbery because no force or threat of force was used. It’s not theft either (from a legal sense) because the hooligan ripped open the packages and left – the hooligan apparently didn’t take any contents in the packages.

Is there a technical legal term for the crime the hooligan I described is committing?
