Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Is there any evidence at all?
Has son filed a criminal police report?
Ok, I hate to say it, but it is not what you feel, but what you can prove in a situation like this. And without any evidence that the son is responsible, there is not much legally that you can do. Speculating that someone may have committed a crime is nowhere near the "beyond a reasonable doubt" needed for a conviction or to get a local DA interested.
About the only thing son could do is set up a hidden camera, motion activated, and then see if he could catch the other person entering his dwelling and then he would have much better grounds to prosecute son or threaten to do so unless he was reimbursed for the stolen items.
