polkadotzibra Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 Not sure if this is the best place but this involves roommates in an apartment. A quick note is that we all get along and are good people, this involves outsiders. Here are the facts, as impartial as I can make them: The apartmentmate Allen brought their friend Carl to spend a few nights at our place on our couch. My roommate's bf crashes at our couch occasionally too. They both did last night and this morning at 8:40, the bf (let's call him steve), woke up to find his phone gone. The phone had half battery life and sounds on, but calling it multiple times showed that the phone was turned off. It was on the coffee table right next to his couch which is where he usually places it since he has an alarm. I heard the alarm at 7:30 but didn't see who turned it off- i was in my room so i assumed steve did but he said he slept through it all. When I woke up, the only 2 people awake was Carl and my apartmentmate. So the phone was taken between 7:30-8:40. While I was at class, my roommate and her bf searched all over the living room but could not find it. They asked to look through Carl's bags. He asked Steve not to tell Allen that he's a junkie and uses and Steve stated he saw needles in the bag. Steve did not touch anything in Carl's bag, Carl just took things out and sifted through it himself. There was no phone there. By this time, both parties are heated up. Allen and Carl are angry because Carl is implicated and Steve is angry that his phone is stolen, which had many personal things stored. Steve and I went to file a police report and the police asked for possible suspects, so we named Carl since he was someone new spending the night. Since we needed his phone number I called Allen, who was outraged that I would ask and said no. I'm not sure what to do as I feel I'm stuck in the middle. It's possible someone snuck through our backyard door which was unlocked since someone was smoking there. It's possible Carl took it and sold it to support his habit. I reminded both parties of these two facts but Allen is having a hard time taking it in and is adamant that Carl wouldn't do it. My friends advised me to stay out of it but I feel I can't because it could have been my belongings taken. And I am shocked to find that a junkie stayed in our apartment. My head's a mess. It's wrong to assume things, such as a junkie stealing stuff, but the situation is pointing to Carl stealing it. What to do??? Link to comment
