What can I do when someone stole stuff from me?

The family that moved in with me and my family, recently moved out, but they took our laundry basket, my comforter, our broom, my mom's tweezers, my wallet, my sister's $20, and I think that's all.

Go on a long trek across the desert to get your items back. Or just call the police. Whatever you feel like doing.

They'll lie to us. We already asked for some of the stuff back. They said that they don't have the wallet or the $20. They only told us that they have the laundrey basket, but won't give it back.

It'll cost you more to go to court than what the value is that you've lost. You actually got off lucky.

You can contact them and ask for it back, if they don't give it back you could fill out a police report, though I doubt it would do much good. Personally I would just take it as a lesson learned and be careful of who I would let stay in y house again.

Unfortunately, because they were living with you, even for a short amount of time, there isn't much that you can do. The police cant do anything. You would have to take them to small claims court.

You can file a report with the police but thechance of getting anything back are slim. Even if the police could do anything it would be low on the list. Your best bet is to try and appeal to their sense of decency, if they have any left. Good luck!
