Breaking and entering?

I just got out of a 1 year relationship with a girl I loved very much. I got a phone call from a friend on friday night that my girlfriend was at a bar with someone else, doing things a girlfriend should not be doing with someone else. I showed up at the bar and watched the two of them kiss and touch and whisper into each others ears until my girlfriend finally noticed me. We exchanged words, I left angrier than I've ever been in my life. Found out the next day this has been happening with multiple people, multiple times, for quite some time now.

Problem now is that she has a key to my apartment. I went through her roommate to try and exchange things but it turned into a mess and just made her roommate mad. My ex told me she left a phone charger, a ring, and a fan at my house. I have the phone charger and the fan, but no ring. She swears she left it there, but alas, it is nowhere to be found. I was gone this morning for about an hour and a half and I come home and the fan (which was hers) is gone, along with a bag of MY stuff I had laying around. She sent me an email today saying she's not giving me my things back until she gets her ring.

She knows she is not welcome in my home, yet she used her key to get into my apartment and will not return the key to me until she gets the ring that I don't have. I'm considering calling the police and filing a report, but I don't know if thats the a good route to go? I want nothing to do with her but she won't believe that I don't have this ring...Im worried she'll keep the bag she STOLE from my house for good because I will never have the ring to give to her. I also worry she may come back to my house and steal more things thinking it'll send me some message for "stealing" her ring. Any bright ideas?

Most importantly, get that lock changed.

Well, you could leave a flaming bag of dog poop on her front porch, ring the doorbell, and then run.

Or I suppose you could go to the police. Technically, what she did might be considered burglary (it looks like she broke and entered with the intent to commit a theft), which is more serious than just breaking and entering. Depending on the circumstances, that could be a felony. Not only would you get your stuff back and gain a renewed sense of personal security, you could also send your ex to the slammer for a few years, and there's little that you can do in this world that can beat ruining someone's life for pure egoistic gratification.

You should be aware, however, that police and prosecutors are usually very reluctant to get involved in what amounts to a personal quarrel. If the stuff that she took was expensive or irreplaceable or had some enormous sentimental value to you, then tell her you'll go to the police unless it's returned. If it isn't, then go to the store and buy some new stuff, change your locks, shake the dust of that relationship from your sandals and forget about her. Sometimes, in very rare cases, it's true what they say: the best revenge is living a good life.

the bag of things were of sentimental value. they aren't worth a whole lot, but they weren't just tshirts, they were shirts i can't just go out and replace. things from my past.

everyone is telling me to file a police report...i really dont want her to be charged with a felony, i just want my stuff back. i'm writing her an email telling her if i dont get my things back, i will file a report. ugh.
