My question involves criminal law for the state of: north carolina
alright my ex roommate and me started having problems back in aug 09 over his live in girlfriend who wasn't paying any bills. i stopped staying at the rental property in dec 09 i continued to pay half of the bills seeing how i was liable for my half of the rent because of the signed lease. i was collecting unemployment and it ran out in feb 2010 there was two months left on the lease. having no money i couldn't pay any of the bills. i have keep in contact with the property manager and have made arrangements to pay my half of the rent for the last two months having recently gotten a job. about two weeks before the lease was up i went by the house to start packing my belongings, my roommate changed the lock so i couldn't get in and of course he wouldn't answer or return my calls. a week past and i decided i was going to break a window to get in and get my stuff. when i went by the house to do so i noticed that my roommate had moved and switched the lock back. he stole my washer and dryer. they were a gift from my old boss, who isn't too happy with me now. i heard through the grapevine that my roommate was going around saying that after 30 days my stuff became his or some crap like that. i have no way of proving that the washer and dryer were mine, except for the word of my friends. what can i do, if anything?
