It doesn't matter if you let someone in voluntarily, if they stole something you can report the stuff stolen and tell the police who you think took the stuff. However, from there it's up to the police and the DA's office to decide whether or not the state is going to be pressing charges against him based on whether they have enough evidence to convict him.
