I would call the police and alert your insurance company, as the repair might be covered if you can prove to them that it was vandalism.
But seriously, I would call the police and file a report--sometimes you can't get anywhere without filing a report, and this will cause the LEO to
talk to the shop that did the change to see if he can determine if they're at fault.
But like at least one other said, with this being the following day, it's going to be hard to prove that it was them.
As for your brakes, if they had cut the lines or did anything drastic with your fluid level, you would have noticed on the way home, as a leak in one
line with cause the pressure to that wheel (or pair of wheels, if you have a dual-reservoir master cylinder) to be pretty much non-existent. If you
didn't notice anything on your way home, I'm guessing they didn't mess with the brakes (unless they just drained enough of the fluid to make it really
low, but still function okay).
You also should have notice some groaning when you turned the wheel and the steering being more difficult if they really sliced your line at the shop,
because that line is pressurized and would have drained the fluid really quickly.
See...tough to prove it was the shop, but filing a police report might reveal a pattern of this happening in your neighborhood and someone could be
randomly vandalizing vehicles. I know it seems like it would be too much of a coincidence, but sometimes coincidences to exist.
Good luck with it, and glad you made it home safely, regardless.
