Is this a qualified theft? I want to file a case against him. To the readers, it may sound petty, but to us,it is not. The other tenants and I have been living peacefully in this house together for over a year (the others were here longer than me). Since he started to rent here, food items keep on disappearing (rice, condiments, cooking oil, etc). In addition to that, we would find our freshly laundered clothes dirty or our undergarments having holes made by scissors. However, we have no evidence for that except for the beer theft.
It started to get chaotic since the old man started living with us two months ago. He has an attitude that gets into your nerve. This is why I want to know if I can pursue a case. I read some stuff and base on my interpretation of the Chapter 3, Art 108 of the Criminal Law of the Phils, what the old man did to me is a qualified theft. Please help me regarding this matter. Thank you very much!
