Q: What to do if someone you know steals everything you own?
My old roommate punched me in the head so I called the cops. I went to get my things a day or two later and everything I had is just gone. That's over $20,000 of personal/business property stolen (I'm a solo proprietor with an EIN)
A: I suggest filing a follow up police report regarding the theft.
more info would be helpful.
however, i would call the police.
i fear they may say it is a civil matter.
then you would probably sue in small claims court.
before filing, send a letter detailing everything that happened and what was missing.
if no response attach, a copy of the letter you send to yourself that you do not open, to the small claims complaint
