I went to the bank with my roommate to cash my check of $5500.00 ...The teller gave me the money all 100 bills. the teller gave me the money in the bank evevople then I went to see the mortage and from there I exited the bank got into my car. I put all of the bank papers and the money in my lunch kit in the back seat. Then I was driving home and mentioned to my roommate that I might be taking my mother to the store. My roommate told me to stop by the gas station to get him some cigars I agreed I did stop and got the cigars for him. But he did not get out of the car. When I got to the car. My roommate told me to drop him off at the neighborhood park b/c he did not want to see my mother. So I dropped him off. When I got home I took everything out of the car and then opened the lunch kit to take the money and bank papers out. But the money was not there. So I got in the car to go find him but he was nowhere to be found.

Have you reported this to the police?

No....not yet....I am not sure what the police could do
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I do not want to police to come to my house since my mother is there and I do not want my mother to know
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 3 years ago
The only way to get him arrested is to report him to the police. They are the only ones that can pursue the criminal charges. You can request that they not come to the house but there is no way to be sure that they won't, especially if he is your roommate at the house. They may want to search his room eventually or at some point may even try to arrest him there.
However, that is your only real recourse at this time. You have to file the police report to get him arrested.

what phone number do I call to report this?
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Just the regular police telephone number. You wouldn't call 911. If you need me to I can look it up for you if you can tell me what city this is in.
