HelloThis Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.The police will not get involved in a civil matter. And it is a civil matter. And so they should not have forced you to allow her back, they should have told her this is a civil matter.At this juncture and because your belonging are missing, I suggest, you report those thefts to the police. Have them do a report, explain the situation with this girl and tell them to begin their investigation with them.In the meantime, I suggest, you contact your LL and tell them what is happening and that you are going to change the locks to keep them out. The LL should not have a problem with that as long as you advise them and provide a key to the new locks and you pay the costs.
As to her clothes, I suggest you contact her, if you can and tell her the property is on the porch, the locks are changed, she is not allowed in and if she does you will file for harassment and trespassing charges against her. Tell her if she has a problem with that to take you to court.
You are correct. You are not a LL. You did not have tenants. You have an "unwanted guest" who you have provided ample time for her to leave.
At this juncture you had her word she would leave. She got torqued because you put her property out. And then she became intentionally malicious against you and your home.
So I suggest with the police reports on the stolen property, her as a key suspect because of her behaviors that should she bring this matter to court, you have a defense. In addition, you never had a lease with her.
She is simply a trespasser and nothing more. Here is the Florida Statute on trespass.810.08 Trespass in structure or conveyance.—
(1) Whoever, without being authorized, licensed, or invited, willfully enters or remains in any structure or conveyance, or, having been authorized, licensed, or invited, is warned by the owner or lessee of the premises, or by a person authorized by the owner or lessee, to depart and refuses to do so, commits the offense of trespass in a structure or conveyance.
So you also could ask your LL to write a letter to her telling her she is not allowed on the premises.
