I think you are placing too much of the burden on yourself. Yes, Canada is legally distinguishable from the US. But you have filed a police report. Let the police do the questioning. It is not simply a matter of 2 wits vs. 6 wits. It is not the quantity of the witnesses but the quality of their statements. Let the detectives and investigators do the questioning and tell them of your dilemma. How about fingerprints? Or any other real evidence like were any items taken from your home and were they discovered and if so, where? You need some one independent to look into this break in of your home.

im not exactly sure what you mean...the statute of limitations applies to the offence... also depends to where you live,,,,,different countries have different penal codes.....is the decision you're trying to make - whether to report it to the Police or not? Because once a police report is filed, the Police make the decision as to whether or not to lay charged...not the complainant....was there any sign of forced entry and was anything taken...the longer you wait...the more chance any evidence there is will dissappear

Call your local police station, as different states may have different laws It does have to be done within the time period that you state allows or the statute of limitations runs out and you cannot press charges after that.. Good luck.

In California, if the person was taken into custody and could not afford bail, he has to be arraigned within 72 hours. However, if no arrest was made, then the DA has possibly one year to prosecute. It depends upon the laws of your state.
