Can I press theft charges? Posted on August 02, 2011

A few days ago I was at band camp and our director told us not to leave valuables in our cases because the place would not be locked or under supervision; If we decided to leave our valuables in our cases (located in the auditorium) it was on us. Since I had no pockets in my shorts I had no choice but to leave my phone in my case. I closed the case and left it in a well lit area with plenty of other cases. After practice I came back to find my phone stolen out of my case. I asked around and nobody had seen anything. Two days after the event I asked the person whom I suspected of the theft and she admitted to it, but didn't act alone. Can I press theft charges on her?
