A: I understand how frustrating and upsetting it must be to feel like you're not being taken seriously by the police. One option you have is to file a formal complaint with the police department about how your case is being handled. This can sometimes prompt a review of your situation and ensure that your concerns are properly addressed.

Another step you can take is to gather as much evidence as possible regarding the theft. This includes any communications, witnesses, or surveillance footage that might support your claim. Presenting clear evidence can help strengthen your case when dealing with law enforcement.

Additionally, you might want to consult with a legal advisor who can provide guidance on how to proceed and protect your rights. They can help you understand your options and potentially take legal action against your neighbor if necessary. Please provide your contact details so I can get back to you with more information on how to move forward.
