I would like my property back. In early Nov. I loaned a

I would like my property back. In early Nov. I loaned a Coachman travel trailer I had just acquired to an acquaintance who had just been for closed on. She was already living in a similar trailer, with her family, however this one had appliances in it. After a few weeks we argued over what the deal was with her use of the trailer, she refused to sign a zero dollar lease. We arranged for me to come get it. Upon arrival at her lot, it became apparent she wasn't returning the property without a fight. It was blocked in, tire off it, and she was refusing to answer door, and changed her phone number! We eventually got her to come outside. She then called the police. The police told her it was unlawful to live in a trailer of that type in Barrow County, GA. However, because I didn't immediately accuse her of theft, they called it a civil matter. She has since left that lot with my trailer, without letting me know (in my opinion then theft by taking), and I occasionally run into her or hear about her whereabouts from mutual friends. She has kept her location secret from all of them as she wants to keep my property. I need it back. What should I do to yield best chance of getting back my property quickly? File criminal charge? File civil charge? When the responding officers were asked how I should contact her, her response was facebook. Which is the only way I know of contacting her. I transferred the registration a few months after the incident and paid taxes on it. She continues to elude me, and told me to "do what I needed to do" last I saw her and told her I would file criminal charges. We've looked everywhere she has told folks she lives and are unable to find where she is keeping the trailer. Approx. Value of property is $3000-4000.

My adult son was recently arrested so fishing lures at

My adult son was recently arrested for shoplifting so fishing lures at Walmart, a very stupid thing on his part I admit. The Police officer who arrested him transferred him to two different police precincts before finally driving him home and releasing him the same night. The police report copy that she gave him stated that the incident happened and she had investigated the crime on 6/6/2016 and made the decision that he should be arrested. However, the incident actually happened on 6/4/2016 and she arrested him that night. Is there anyway to get the charges dropped due to this error? He just moved here and I am trying to help him get his life together, stop drinking that kind of thing. He was due to start a new job on the 6th but she refused to give him back his ID which he needed to begin the job stating that it was evidence, it took us two days to get it and his belongings from the police department, making it so that he had to wait till this week to start working. Is there anything we can do at this point to either get the charges dropped or lessen the impact of his totally idiotic and foolish mistake.
