Someone stole about 12,000 worth of musical equipment from me. What will happen if the cops only recover some items but not all?

A 3,600 macbook. 2 Gibson Guitars worth 2,600 and 1,600 individually. An vox amplifier valued @1,600. iPad @750. A pedalboard @1,700. I am a professional musician and I was simply having lunch after leading 3 worship services in San Antonio.
