I certainly understand the situation and your concern. I am sorry to hear about you even having to deal with this. She can make all the allegations that she wants but there is going to need to be evidence and facts to support her claim. She saying she is going to go to the police and file charges, means nothing. She will have to show and explain what you stole and that it was even something in your moms possession. Moreover, why they think you took these alleged items. If there is no evidence to show and support the theft, the police are not going to take any action, since there is nothing which would allow them to even make an arrest and have you charged. Moreover, you and other relatives can speak and explain to the police, exactly what is happening and your belief about her and they can and will consider this, in the investigation .They will also speak with your mother and see what she has to say as well.
