A: That's too bad police did not want to deal with it. You have an option of filing a complaint for Civil Theft. Once you get a judgment you will have to initiate a collection suit asking for a Writ of Replevin that's when you turn over that document to the police and they go and get it.

A: This is not an arbitration issue whatsoever, this is an outright theft issue, and you should call the police again until someone writes up a report on the matter.
