Answer: I"m a little confused about your situation but I'd advise you to call the cops to help you retrieve your property and go there with you to get it. Your b/f or the landlord has stolen this stuff from you and has no right to keep any of it. You could also report the theft of the AUgust rent money to the police but unless you have some proof, I think you have probably waited too long to get that back. Good luck.
