I own an apartment with 3 tenants. Myself and the other male

I own an apartment with 3 tenants. Myself and the other male do not wish for the third tenant to have their significant other in the apartment. The significant other has made threats of theft and vandalism. If she (third party) allows her boyfriend (significant other) into the apartment but have made it clear to both of them that the boyfriend is not allowed in, will calling the cops for trespassing be a smart move? Wat are my legal options?

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 boyfriend is in county jail in Arizona probation

My boyfriend is in county jail in Arizona for a probation violation (he returned a diluted drug test and was given 30 days). He is on probation due to a F6 drug paraphernalia charge that he pled guilty to. He also has a warrant in Denver for F6 theft (he is considered at large in Colorado) with no bond. We are concerned about extradition to Colorado, and are wondering about the likelihood of this, and if he has any other options. I spoke with the warrants dept, the sheriff's dept, and the county jail in Denver, and they have his warrant on file but there was no mention of extradition. I then spoke with the county jail in Yavapai as well as the sheriff's dept. The jail told me he has a detainer but didn't know for what, but the sheriff's office told me they haven't had any contact with anyone in Colorado and haven't told Denver they have him in custody. They also said he is still scheduled to be released from jail on June 23rd. I am wondering if the detainer at the jail could be from another charge or warrant in AZ that he doesn't know about or something old he forgot about, or if we should be concerned about extradition to Denver. When I looked at his public record files, it looked like there were new rulings that came about after he went to jail this time.
