Re: Roommate Accused Me of Stealing Her Laptop; Filed a Police Report
Gotta ask, what was the reason for shooting a video? Perchance to establish the laptop as being in the abode? That in and of itself may prove more damaging than helpful.....shows that you and the laptop were together and alone during the final moments of your occupancy.
If I was in that sorta situation I would've taken the logical step of having the landlord personally inspect the place as the last thing after moving all my belongings out. Maybe the second to the last thing. The last thing would've been to hand him/her my key(s), then drive off into the sunset. Of course, if available, I would've had my roomie there also. But that's just me.
The police can, and possibly will, issue a warrant if an investigation reasonably shows that you are the most likely suspect. Or rather, the prosecuting attorney's will issue the warrant.
That will be after an investigation is accomplished and it points to you being responsible for the laptop's disappearance.
The "luxury condo" premise is not germane to your contention that you are not responsible for the laptop going missing. Whether it be a trailerpark or Buckingham Palace, it's simply not relevant.
However, you moving out-of-state may give investigators a cause for pause. Sorta lends itself to a 'they can't touch me 'cause I'm outta state' theory.
You can educate dumb, but you can't fix stupid!
If guns kill people, then I blame my pen/pencil/keyboard for misspelled words!
