Legal fault for theft would fall to the thieves. I suppose if you could prove that the landlord told the tenants to steal your property (seems unlikely) then he could be responsible as well.
If you can show that your property was, in fact, stolen by the tenants, you could pursue a claim for civil theft and potentially get a judgment for three times the value of the stolen property plus attorney fees and costs.
