If someone damages something then steals it is it two misdemeanors or a misdemeanor and a felony?

For example, if I had something stolen from me worth $800. Someone did $400 worth of damage to it before stealing it.

    Stealing something above a certain value is a felony, the value varies from state to state. Damaging property can be either a criminal or a civil offense.
