HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am not sure I understand. What is it you want to do? Do you know the person who took the pills? Do you want criminal charges against them?
HelloThank you.The charges could be theft, and also possession of a CDS and if they are giving them away or selling them Distribution of CDS
The maximum on these offenses could be up to 5 years in jail. However, generally on a first offense they are placed on probation.
The person who was the victim of the theft would need to file the charges. Though you could make the police aware of this and provide the "victim's" name and they could contact them.
You can contact the police and tell them that one of your guests is the victim of a theft that occurred in your home. And they would then investigate - yes.
You would provide the name of the friend who had the pills stolen and you could also provide the name of the guest who took them. It would be up to the police to move forward. But also keep in mind,if you tell the police the theft was of a CDS and now the person has given them to someone else, they would get on it, because of the CDS distribution.
You are welcome. You can tell the guest who took the pills that this is a big crime and what the possible penalty is and maybe they would work to get the pills back. It's a shame that she does not want to do that.
