Does my roommates belongings belong to me if she refuses to pay me money for bills? Posted on July 31, 2011

I had a roommate that moved out owing me money. She has not returned for months. Does that constitute abandonment of her lease? She was supposed to be paying electric and it was turned off. She left to go stay with her sister and has not been back yet. This was in the beginning of April. With her not contacting me, paying the money that is owed to me and not coming to pick up her things. Is considered abandonment and mean that what she left now belongs to me?
