What do i do if im a teacher and a janitor keeps stealing my belongings when im not there?

(there are no video cameras and the administration already knows) i am not the only employee here with this problem, everyone in the school knows but no one has actual proof because they do it late at night when everyone is gone

Be sure it is them that is doing the deed. You need evidence.

Report him to the person in charge of school either a principle or a guidance counselor or anyone with authority there.

Punch him in the throat. Write his name in your Deathnote.

F@&$ him up. Get a couple people to beat him down with masks on after his shift gets over, then leave a sign in your desk that says: "Do not touch or else!" This punk meth bag prolly has a beating long time coming.

They are a teacher. They will use good judgement which means first and foremost not getting caught.

So nice to hear non violent and intelligent solutions. No wonder this country is in the crapper.

I don't have much tolerance for sneaky thieves who take advantage of people. Steal from a corporation and ill prolly look the other way- steal from my neighbor and I might hit you with a lead pipe. Its a matter of social justice. Someone openly stealing from people they know, is reprehensible. It's likely anyone desperate enough to steal a stapler and a box of pencils is tweaking. Meth heads should probably be selected against. Preying on this poor teachers innocence is not okay. I think the camera idea is fine too but this dudes been doing it for a while if he is so bold. I'm not condoning murder either- I just said a beat down. Personal crimes like this require a personal touch sometimes. I know it's too much for your mind to take but in the real world it's okay to give the cops a break sometimes. When he comes to school with a black eye I don't think he'll be as uppity about stealing. But like I said the camera thing is a fine idea too.

Set up a video camera, and a nice trap to see where your things have been going. Then you will have proof, and you can take it straight to the police!

Are there cameras that show that he/she is actually the one stealing? I would report my suspicions to my supervisor and remove valuables and/or request permission to keep room locked and clean it yourself. If you are not positive it is a particular person, you could be ruining someone's hard earned reputation as an honest person.

Confront him and see if he fesses up to the crime. If not get all the teachers to go in on some cameras, hide them, and catch him in the act.

Set your own video camera up, show it to the police and your boss. That's what I would do.
