How do I go about retrieving stolen goods as they were taken…

Customer Question
How do I go...

How do I go about retrieving stolen goods as they were taken this morning over me owing a bill?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state/territory are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I’m in Queensland.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I have tried to negotiate with the person and I have contacted the local police

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No that is all thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
