I have serial numbers for the electronics but the police will not return my calls to retrieve the evidence that I have. I have emails from the person that informed Me of who kicked my door in and robbed me
You cannot sue the police as they have immunity. However, you could speak to the police chief or lead detective or the states attorney if you feel you're being ignored.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
No, but if you have some evidence that the stolen items are in a neighbor's house, take the evidence to the police so they can get a search warrant signed by a judge.
