My wife moved out and stole my Mac Book, Cell Phone, tenants rent money television and video game counsel. Can I go to the police and press charges
Go to the police.

The way to begin any criminal charges is to file a complaint with the police department. It is in their discretion as to whether to treat this as a crime.
I am a former Brooklyn Criminal Court Deputy Bureau Chief with 20 years experience specializing in handling criminal cases. All answers are for information purposes only.

Yes. File a report at the precinct. Explain that the property stolen was yours exclusively.
