So I was dealing with a guy that stole my iphone x twice. The first time he cash apped himself $150.00 (I have proof of that) but claimed it wasn't him. I was sleep and when I woke up he wasn't there or my phone. The 2nd time he stole my phone while I was sleep again at a family members house and was gone when I got up. That is what confirmed that it was him. Do you think I can win in small claims court?
I cannot evaluate the proof based on your description, but it might be significantly easier to inform him you are going to the police and then go to the police. The burden of proof will be higher, but the cost and time of litigation will be less, and your someone will learn a valuable lesson about criminal behavior. What you cannot do is threaten to go to the police to gain economic advantage. That is extortion. Just report the crime.
Reading an answer on the Internet does not create an attorney-client relationship. You are represented by me when we have both signed a retainer agreement (on paper or electronically) and some money has changed hands. Usually, you will have been asked specific questions about your situation and all potential conflicts of interest will have been resolved. Until then, you have no more right to rely on this answer than if you read it in a novel or on LegalZoom.
