Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Yes, you do. If your ex entered your residence without your permission and authority and removed property from your home that did not belong to her, you've made out the elements of a residential burglary, and the state will likely be willing to prosecute her. If she didn't commit a crime inside your home, then that would still be criminal trespass.

Report it to the police and let them know you have the entry on video. If you want her charged, let them know that.
