Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Firstly it is not just a civil matter. From your description there is either fraud or theft. I would ask that the police reconsider their decision and you may wish to escalate it in this regard. It is very much a criminal matter. As to the money outstanding you can also (and I stress also) bring a small claim action against him for the money due and any losses/damages sustained 0 this can be done at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk

Hi. I'm afraid the answer above is incorrect.
Does he know that he has these items?
It would seem to be potentially an accident.
Have you any means of contacting him?
I am afraid that I do not agree with my colleague at all. This is not uncommon with lawyers. It is very clear from what you have stated that the police should reconsider. It is also very clear that he has acted intentionally. It is certainly not an accident. My original comments are as such correct. Happy to discuss further but please rate positive.
