  • Ditto the camera
    If you know who it is id also call the cops about it .
    Maybe ask a neighbor you trust to keep an eye out.

  • First, try to get some factual evidence, via camera or visually watch him, then go to the police station with what you have, what has been stolen since you've noticed, and what you have seen this person steal from your property.
    Even if you do not have concrete evidence of who may be stealing from you, you can still file a police report and then follow up everytime you notice something else has been stolen.
    It sucks, but we can't accuse anyone of doing anything unless we see them doing it or have proof. Some police are willing to investigate themselves while others take the 'wait-and-see' approach.
    Keep up with it and I wish you all the best.
