My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
I have recently had my car stolen and it had about $2000 worth of musical equipment in the trunk. The car was recovered (miraculously undamaged) and the thief is now in custody. Unfortunately, all of the musical gear is gone, and I am having a really hard time getting the police to help me recover it. I don't have the serial numbers for the items, but I can give exact descriptions of the makes and models of what was lost. Is there anyway to convince the police to go and search the suspects house for the stolen goods? It seems like a no brainer to me, but I am just getting transferred from department to department as no one seems to want to deal with it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
