If the offense caused property damage or loss not taken into account within the guidelines, the court may increase the sentence above the authorized guideline range.  The extent of the increase ordinarily should depend on the extent to which the harm was intended or knowingly risked and on the extent to which the harm to property is more serious than other harm caused or risked by the conduct relevant to the offense of conviction.
