Unfortunately, this is a civil claim (not a criminal one - so the police will not assist you).You can sue your landlord for the loss of your belongings in civil court.Here is a link to the California Attorney General's landlord/tenant handbook specifically regarding the tenant's rights to their property after vacating property.http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/legal_guides/lt-4.shtml
